Fifteen top young-adult authors let us in on some provocative secrets in this fascinating collection of short fiction that will have listeners talking.
A baby no one knows about. A dangerous hidden identity. Hookups that are off-limits. A parent whose problems your friends won't understand. Everyone keeps secrets - from themselves, from their families, from their friends - and secrets have a habit of shaping lives around them.
Acclaimed author Ann Angel brings together some of today's most gifted YA authors as they explore unique perspectives on secrets in genres as diverse as the writers themselves: Do they make you stronger or weaker? Do they alter your world when revealed? Do they compartmentalize your life into what you're willing to share and what you aren't? The one thing these stories have in common is how they reveal the characters' secret selves buried underneath - whether they want them to be shared or not.
