Whether it is basketball dreams, family fiascos, first crushes, or new neighborhoods, this bold anthology--written by the best children's authors including Kwame Alexander, Soman Chainani, Jacqueline Woodson, and many more--celebrates the uniqueness and universality in all of us.

"Will resonate with any kid who's ever felt different --which is to say, every kid." -- Time

From these distinguished authors come ten distinct and vibrant stories.
