I really wanted to love this collection. But with any short story collection there are stronger stories than others in it. I'm not geeky enough for a few of them since I'm not into those particular geekdoms. In between each of the stories are fun comics by Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O'Malley. The authors compiled into this collection are some of the best teen literature authors today. Unfortunately, our library's catalog doesn't let you know that they are in here! So here's the author list:
Wendy Mass Garth Nix Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith
Scott Westerfeld Lisa Yee Sara Zarr
So if you want to get your geek on or if you want to just explore some of the short stories by some great teen lit authors, then this is the book for you!
