Some New Short Stories

16.06.09 | Comment?

We’ve got a couple of new short story anthologies that girls in particular will be interested in.

Cleavage: Breakaway Fiction for Real Girls (186 pages) – “edgy” stories written by mostly (if not all) Canadian authors about girls who do things a bit differently,  who “challenge convention and girls who wish they could.” Could be worth a look if you’re doing short stories at school, or just for a feel good experience.

Does This Book Make Me Look Fat? Stories about loving – and loathing – your body (214 pages) – this collection opens with a quote from Miss Piggy, so it’s got to be good. Contributors such as Megan McCafferty (Sloppy Firsts), Sarra Manning, Carolyn Mackler (The Earth, My Butt…) and Sara Zarr (Sweethearts)… it’s an impressive list of authors who write about girls of substance.
