With contributions from acclaimed, bestselling, and award-winning young adult authorsincluding Gary D. Schmidt, author of The Wednesday Wars; Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook; Sara Zarr, author of Story of a Girl; and Wendy Mass, author of A Mango-Shaped Spacethis collection encourages individuality by breaking traditionally held norms, making it an ideal resource for tweens and teens
