  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #1
    *Starred Review* This YA anthology is filled to the brim with romantic, transcendent short fiction about teens in interracial relationships. The dynamic collection features a wide scope of writing styles and diverse narratives, such as a historical romance about a couple torn apart by British colonialism as they find themselves on opposite sides of Britain's growing rule on India (The Agony Of A Heart's Wish by Samira Ahmed), a Black superhero forced to save her girlfriend's conservative father after he makes it clear he doesn't support the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the community that she fights to protect (Your Life Matters by L.L. Mckinney), and a gender-bent Persephone retelling in which a teen girl must leave her comfortable life behind in favor of becoming the bride of Hades (Death And The Maiden by Tara Sim). Not only are the characters diverse, but the narratives they inhabit are, too, as the collection celebrates stories that fall within the sf and fantasy world as well as the contemporary fiction genre. These writers bring their rich talents to this book as they make it clear just how beautiful love is, regardless and because of race. By curating a collection filled with authentic characters of color and diverse storylines, Mandanna encourages writers and readers alike to take chances and truly color outside the lines in YA. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
