Knockout this with my entire heart A Stranger athe Bochinche by Daniel Jos Older This one had a little difficult of a learning curve I hink just because it felt like such a fantastic SFF world But I still really enjoyed his one with a Latinx main character and I also Once Upon a River thinkhere was a very important discussion on how white people have stolentaken a lot of hings from people of color and ry കൊടകരപുരാണം Kodakarapuranam to make itheir own while also stealing credit I also really liked how his was so very different han everything else in his anthology A Boy s Duty by Sharon G Flake I really enjoyed his historical story The Golden Section that starred a black homeless boy who srying o not give up on his dreams or his love for astronomy And even hough Tom Clancy's The Division: New York Collapse this story has its sweet moments it was a very heavy oneoo From just reading a book about a homeless kid The Year of Lear: Shakespeare in 1606 to seeing everyday racismo learning about a side character who is grieving Two Wheels in the Dust: From Kathmandu to Kandy the worst loss inhis world This was able o evoke a lot of emotions from me And honestly This is he ype of story you read and immediately want o go out in Northern Knits: Designs Inspired by the Knitting Traditions of Scandinavia, Iceland, and the Shetland Isles the world and do better One Voice by Melissa de la Cruz I lovedhis short story so very much This story centers around a string of hate crimes The Western Wind that are happening on Stanford s campus and we geto see how it s impacting a Filipina girl whose family was undocumented This story alks heavily on he privilege Take It Back that white and white passing peopleake for granted when Domme for Cowboy they are doing something as simple as walking backo heir dorms How white people can use police and authority figures as a convenience where people of color not only can but hey feel afraid of what will happen if hey speak out And his story perfectly alks about how hard it is o reclaim your space once it has been violated and deemed unsafe And his also even discusses how we sexualize Asian woman and how so many men fetishize hem Like I said above I am so very white passing but his is a book about a Filipina girl studying microbiology what I got my degree in at UofM Like I knew from Finding Me the first page I was goingo completely love The Changer’s Key this novellahe most in his collection But as I read I realized how I wish I could give his short story o every student and make it reuired reading This was You are holding fresh ink And not hot off he press still drying in your hands ink Instead you are holding Portrait of Two Families twelve stories with endingshat are still being written whose next chapters are up Untamed Voices (If you listen, they will speak Book 1) to youBecausehese stories are meant o be read And sharedThirteen. Masterpiece and now I feel like such a fool for never reading Melissa de la Cruz before Beautiful important and completely moving PaladinSamurai by Gene Luen Yang I loved how a graphic work was incorporated into A Woman Is No Man this anthology but I just didn completely love his one But I did appreciate it starting out with a DD campaign I also hink his one didn pack a punch like all Ashtakavarga Simplified the rest inhe collection but it s about a Japanese boy wanting o play as a Samurai in his DD campaign but his DM will only allow hem o be one of five classes which is absurd so he is rying o get o be a Paladin But The Dark Enlightenment: Jung, Romanticism, and the Repressed Other that s justhe DM being bad because Paladins and Samurais are nothing alike Just because Miss Becky's Charm School: Using Southern Belle Secrets to Land Your Man they both use melee weapons I m sorry I really wantedo love Her Unexpected Affair this Catch Pull Drive by Schuyler Bailar Schuyler Bailar ishe first openly ransgender NCAA Division I swimmer He was first recruited in 2013 o Harvard s Women Swimming and Diving eam but after his ransition he was recruited o he men s eam And his success is such an inspiration hat I honestly was crying reading his Wiki And just knowing his makes his story even beautiful and powerful This story is about a rans boy who has finally come out o his

Special Nurse transphobic slurs use of dead name all ofhese are challenged and none are in a positive light but it can be hard o read This was easily one of my favorites stories in he collection even A Scandalous Situation though an ethnicity andor culture is never brought up buthe author is a PoC Super Human by Nicola Yoon This was probably he most perfect concluding story o any anthology every Nicola Yoon just The Secret Millionaire teleports me with her writing everyime and I need a full length story o his immediately Oh my gosh But his is a powerful story about how no black person is safe from police brutality in America not even superheroes And one black girl unfolds he story and has her eyes opened This story is so relevant so important and is honestly a short masterpiece I loved his so much and it is such a shining star in his collection I can wait for he rest of Dirty Dutch: Everyday Slang from What's Up? to F*% the worldo fall in love with it Out of a possible 60 stars 5 stars
