It's rare for me to find a story collection by various authors where I don't skip a single one. Which is why I was so surprised that I enjoyed all the stories in this book. The stories were wide-ranging in their settings, topics, and tones but fit well together. I enjoyed the references to Winnie-the-Pooh, Where the Wild Things Are, and Icarus in the stories but I appreciated the lessons learned by the relatable teen characters even more.
