Fresh Ink is a collection of YA short stories written by some of YA’s most well known authors. Each story is completely unique. There is a graphic story, a one-act play, and 10 other diverse, amazing stories. I loved all of them for different reasons, but there were a few stand-out favorites; Meet Cute by Malinda Lo, Catch, Pull, Drive by Schuyler Bailar, and Super Human by Nicola Yoon.

Some stories brought me to tears, while others were just so relatable and fun. Whether you normally read YA or not, I think everyone can find something to love in this collection!

Synopsis: In partnership with We Need Diverse Books, thirteen of the most recognizable, diverse authors come together in this remarkable YA anthology featuring ten short stories, a graphic short story, and a one-act play from Walter Dean Myers never before in-print.

Careful–you are holding fresh ink. And not hot-off-the-press, still-drying-in-your-hands ink. Instead, you are holding twelve stories with endings that are still being written–whose next chapters are up to you.

Because these stories are meant to be read. And shared.

Thirteen of the most accomplished YA authors deliver a label-defying anthology that includes ten short stories, a graphic novel, and a one-act play. This collection will inspire you to break conventions, bend the rules, and color outside the lines. All you need is fresh ink.

Thank you so much to Crown Books for Young Readers and NetGalley for letting me review this book!
