    1. I am giving this two stars because, in general, it's not a very good anthology. That doesn't mean every story in it is a two-star story. I would give Gregory MacGuire's "The Honorary Shepherds" at least four - the writing reminded me of David Levithan, which is always a plus - and Donna Allegra's "God Lies in the Details" is a solid three.

    3. I was always one of the others growing up, you know the ones who exist on the edges of the school life, and how I wished this book had been around growing up. Just being able to read about people who didn't fit into the societal norms, would have made it easier to deal with being different from the majority, at least for me. I enjoyed the different voices, and experiences from each of these tales.

    4. For the most part, a disappointing collection. However, this may have been the short-story book I read where the last one was two girls in a boarding school getting expelled? In that case, yay!
