Thank you to Netgalley for sending me this book for review I m taking the time today to finally sit down and review Fresh Ink I had a lot of fun reading this book which surprised me considering it was a compilation of short stories and frankly me and short stories do not get a long very well see example me and every single Neil Gaiman compilation I ve ever read Fresh Ink as I said is a collection of short stories but it goes beyond so much than that Each story was written specifically in mind for representation and diversity It overflows with it but not in a painful forced kind of way We have Indian African American trans LGBT and so many I felt myself smiling at almost every single on of these stories My personal favorite was about a super hero When it comes to my usual reviewing system I feel like it would be a bit convoluted if I tried to review every single story in this novel I will say that I only faintly disliked a couple of the stories however Overall the writing styles for most of them was done so well I hadn t heard of almost any of these authors and I m excited to have a taste of what I think will become some of my new favorite authorsI think this book provides so much than it s marketed as I think it s a great collection full of diversity as I stated but it s also a great way to get a taste for authors you may not have known about that are also a part of a very important group of authors that need attention I hear all the time about people who wish they knew where to start to find diverse reads and I think this collection will give people a great jumping off point I rated this book essentially on enjoyment alone and I ended up giving it a 4 star review I think that overall most of the stories were written well they flowed well and bonus points for the diversity that didn t feel forced or fake I couldn t give it 5 stars because two of the stories I didn t like at all not because of plot but because of writing

READ & DOWNLOAD Fresh Ink An Anthology

FREE DOWNLOAD ï Fresh Ink An Anthology 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 printCareful. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewFirst off I m a cis extremely white passing reviewer I have been able to see myself in literature and media my entire life regardless of how much my Filipino culture means to me and how proud of it I am So even though all of these stories are ownvoices this review you are about to read is not After publication I will feature some actual ownvoices reviews here because this anthology was created to support and boost diverse and marginalized voices therefore we should also be supporting and boosting diverse and marginalized reviewers If you re a PoC who would like to have your review listed on mine please DM me on any platform It became pretty freaking clear that book after book adventure after adventure the heroes weren t like me at all I don t mean short and moderately athletic with severe seasonal allergies because I m aware those traits might hinder one s ability to save the cityworldgalaxy I mean black boys More often than not if I ran across a character who shared my race and gender in a book he was a gross stereotype comic relief token sidekick or depending on genre I m looking at you science fiction fantasy and horror there to die so the real hero could fight another day Next friends this was amazing Like go get your preorders ready This is so worth every single penny And if you have some extra money maybe you d be interested to donating to We Need Diverse Books as well And hopefully one day we will live in a world where every child can easily see themselves in all media And the first step to that is showing the world how important books like Fresh Ink are and how these stories are uite literally life changing This book has so much Black stories Asian stories Native stories Persian stories Latinx stories Muslim stories Bi stories Trans stories Contemporary stories play acts fantasy stories historical stories sweet stories heavy stories superhero stories And every single one is ownvoices What a damn blessing in 2018 I m not sure I ve ever been as proud reviewing a book as I am reviewing Fresh Ink My personal favorites were Meet Cute by Malinda Lo Why I Learned to Cook by Sara Farizan One Voice by Melissa de la Cruz and Super Human by Nicola Yoon but I promise there is so much to love on every single page of this anthology I have no word combination to let you all know how powerful and amazing this collection is I m going to break down each short story with my thoughts opinions and individual star rating Eraser Tattoo by Jason Reynolds This was so beautifully written and it was able to evoke so many emotions from me despite this being so short This is a story about a girl and boy who have grown up together and who having fallen in love over the years having to say goodbye because one of them is moving away But while the girl and her family are moving we also get to see a white family moving in and their disregard for the black family packing up and leaving the home they ve known for most their lives This was a perfect opener to this collection Meet Cute by Malinda Lo This was perfection in every single way Like to genderbend and racebend cosplays to living that constantly ueer life of always uestioning if the person you are currently flirting with is also ueer to all the nerdy references to the call out of me never being able to hide my blushing to the feeling of claustrophobia and anxiousness in hectic crowd settings This felt like a love letter to myself in every way and it was easily the story I most connected to This also has such an important discussion about geek culture and how toxic it can be and how gross dudes can be towards girls And this story stars two girls whose paths happen to cross at a convention center while a big storm causes the power to go out And if you like The X Files and Star Trek you have to buy this anthology for this story alone I can t stop smiling just thinking about this one I loved it And give me all the ww stories Masterpiece Don t Pass Me By by Eric Gansworth This was an amazing short story that packed such a powerful punch We follow a Native boy who lives on a reservation but is forced to go to a Junior High where he is in the vast minority This story talks about how some people of color are white passing or people who are biracial or how some choose to hide their heritage and how some stand out now regardless of their wants or wishes This also heavily talks about how white is the norm in most classrooms and how hurtful that can be to teens who are proud of who they are and their beautiful not white skin color Be Cool for Once by Aminah Mae Safi Friends this was just written completely captivating for me The conversations the setting the feeling of having a crush this was just such an accurate depiction of my high school experience and I loved it I legit giggled tears over the Anne Boleyn conversation Also full disclosure here my first kiss was at a similar concert experience as this so this story was just completely perfect for me All the feels And this story s main character is a Muslim American teen whose parents immigrated to The United States and the boy she is crushing over stated that his grandparents immigrated to The United States After reading this I instantly added Not the Girls You re Looking for to my TBR because this was such an addicting read I truly fell in love with this author s writing Tags by Walter Dean Myers This was beyond words powerful This story is told by one act in a play that I wish the world could actually see We get to see four boys recounting the reason they died while hoping their tags will keep them remembered Systemic oppression is highlighted in this story and how we allow black men and women to die because of the broken cycles we ve never abolished It s a different kind of slavery and police brutality and internalized racism enforce it This script evoked so much emotion from me and seeing these young men s stories cross is something I don t even have words for Seriously this is a must read Not just from this collection but from all the works being published in 2018 Also I m reporting this with a very heavy heart but the author of this story passed away a few years ago But I am forever thankful that his beautiful work was still incorporated into this anthology Why I Learned to Cook by Sara Farizan This story has a Persian bi main character and I ve never felt so blessed This ww romance was also the damn cutest Yasi also has anxiety and is feeling a little anxious to come out to her Grandmother who immigrated to the United States from Iran seventeen years ago And every Friday night Yasi has dinner with her and on this particular Friday she asks her to teach her how to cook She then spends the next two months learning everything her grandmother knows while also not being sure how to come out You all this story had the best one liners in the collection The beautiful writing and important messages were the perfect combination You don t apologize for who you are And the ending was the cutest thing I ve ever read All the happy years This was such a bright shining light in this collection I loved this with my entire heart A Stranger at the Bochinche by Daniel Jos Older This one had a little difficult of a learning curve I think just because it felt like such a fantastic SFF world But I still really enjoyed this one with a Latinx main character and I also think there was a very important discussion on how white people have stolentaken a lot of things from people of color and try to make it their own while also stealing credit I also really liked how this was so very different than everything else in this anthology A Boy s Duty by Sharon G Flake I really enjoyed this historical story that starred a black homeless boy who s trying to not give up on his dreams or his love for astronomy And even though this story has its sweet moments it was a very heavy one too From just reading a book about a homeless kid to seeing everyday racism to learning about a side character who is grieving the worst loss in this world This was able to evoke a lot of emotions from me And honestly This is the type of story you read and immediately want to go out in the world and do better One Voice by Melissa de la Cruz I loved this short story so very much This story centers around a string of hate crimes that are happening on Stanford s campus and we get to see how it s impacting a Filipina girl whose family was undocumented This story talks heavily on the privilege that white and white passing people take for granted when they are doing something as simple as walking back to their dorms How white people can use police and authority figures as a convenience where people of color not only can t but they feel afraid of what will happen if they speak out And this story perfectly talks about how hard it is to reclaim your space once it has been violated and deemed unsafe And this also even discusses how we sexualize Asian woman and how so many men fetishize them Like I said above I am so very white passing but this is a book about a Filipina girl studying microbiology what I got my degree in at UofM Like I knew from the first page I was going to completely love this novella the most in this collection But as I read I realized how I wish I could give this short story to every student and make it reuired reading This was a masterpiece and now I feel like such a fool for never reading Melissa de la Cruz before Beautiful important and completely moving PaladinSamurai by Gene Luen Yang I loved how a graphic work was incorporated into this anthology but I just didn t completely love this one But I did appreciate it starting out with a DD campaign I also think this one didn t pack a punch like all the rest in the collection but it s about a Japanese boy wanting to play as a Samurai in his DD campaign but his DM will only allow them to be one of five classes which is absurd so he is trying to get to be a Paladin But that s just the DM being bad because Paladins and Samurais are nothing alike Just because they both use melee weapons I m sorry I really wanted to love this Catch Pull Drive by Schuyler Bailar Schuyler Bailar is the first openly transgender NCAA Division I swimmer He was first recruited in 2013 to Harvard s Women Swimming and Diving team but after his transition he was recruited to the men s team And his success is such an inspiration that I honestly was crying reading his Wiki And just knowing this makes this story even beautiful and powerful This story is about a trans boy who has finally come out to his school via Facebook and is now having his first day on his school s swim team as a boy And with that comes a brand new locker room and new reactions from his peers TWCW for bullying hate speech transphobic slurs use of dead name all of these are challenged and none are in a positive light but it can be hard to read This was easily one of my favorites stories in the collection even though an ethnicity andor culture is never brought up but the author is a PoC Super Human by Nicola Yoon This was probably the most perfect concluding story to any anthology every Nicola Yoon just teleports me with her writing every time and I need a full length story to this immediately Oh my gosh But this is a powerful story about how no black person is safe from police brutality in America not even superheroes And one black girl unfolds the story and has her eyes opened This story is so relevant so important and is honestly a short masterpiece I loved this so much and it is such a shining star in this collection I can t wait for the rest of the world to fall in love with it Out of a possible 60 stars 5 stars possible for each of the 12 stories this collection accumulated 51 stars 85% But these numbers mean nothing because Fresh Ink means to me than any amount of math This collection is so damn important and I truly believe is life changing This a five star read and I implore you all to preorder and reuest at your libraries Everyone deserves to see themselves and their experiences represented in book and Fresh Ink is the anthology that the world needs Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Youtube Twitch The uote above was taken from an ARC and is subject to change upon publication
