Can't Wait Wednesday #29, Fresh Ink: An Anthology

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings She has taken on a similar meme to Jills Waiting on Wednesday over at Breaking the Spine. Since Jill hasn't posted in a while I'm going to join in on this meme. To participate all you have to do is spotlight upcoming publications you're eagerly anticipating. Keep reading to see what I have chosen for this week.

Series: N/A
# of pages: 208 
Publication: August 14, 2018
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.

This is one of my most anticipated anthologies for the year. I'm super excited for this book because it has so many amazing authors. These are the people who can speak to the experience of writing and reading diverse books and I'm super excited to get into their stories. There is even a graphic novel and a one-act play included. I think that I'm most excited about the stories written by Jason Reynolds, Nicola Yoon, and Daniel Jose Older. It'll be really fun and exciting to see how these stories were developed. What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
