I am so behind with certain authors – Tamora Pierce being high on that list. This book was published in 2011, and has a collections of stories spanning all of Pierce’s various series, as well as one that’s in the real world.
I definitely liked some stories better than others, but I will say, I enjoyed the really wide diversity of stories – even if I didn’t care for some as much, this represented a really interesting selection of differing viewpoints.
One of my favorites was “Testing”, which is the real world story I mentioned above, and is based on Pierce’s experiences being the housemother in a group home for girls. That story just had a lot of heart that I really enjoyed.
