Stay True: Short Stories for Strong Girls (Apple Signature)

Stay True: Short Stories for Strong Girls (Apple Signature)My favorites Guess Who s Back in Town, Dear The Transformations of Cindy R The Magic Bow Her dreams are often rich in other totally unsuitable and unwanted types Stay True is my favorite book of short stories that I ve ever read Of course my favorite story was Going Fishing I think every teen girl should read this book, or actually, really anyone at all Stay True captures everything you want in a book of short stories It s authentic, honest, dramatic and.true. Pretty good I didn t care for only 3 11 of the stories.The best was Building Bridges by Andrea Davis Pinkney It s about a black teenager who wants to become an engineer and design buildings Her grandmother who is raising her has other ideas for her future, thinking that engineering is white mans work It was just really good.The funniest was The Statue of Liberty Factory by Jennifer Armstrong A teenager, in the 1970s, on the front lawn protesting a decision her parents made Pretty funny stuff in this one. I ve spent my fall struggling to balance reading for an intense British and Western Literature course and desperately searching for stories designed to appeal to struggling readers and writers This is a lovely anthology, but designed for the average reader as opposed to kids who need some action, some gore, some kind of hook beyond the difficulty of everyday life Recommended for teachers of regular freshmen these stories are highly teachable, but do not contain the kind of octane I am seeking for my particular crowd. I enjoyed the stories in this book They were very inspirational and could very much be uplifting for girls going through a hard time I had a good time reading this. A reasonably good anthology of short stories for girls I particularly liked the story, Building Bridges by Andrea Davis Pinkney and found the story The Statue of Liberty Factory by Jennifer Armstrong to be entertaining The rest didn t do much for me I m clearly not the target audience. I m a fan of short stories and I really enjoyed this book I recommend it to girls my age. stupid Now that I have completed this book, I can tell that the characters were brought to life Each character had a different situation, and they may or may not have gone through it positively For example, when a character wants to to an engineer, and her guardian does not approve it Each character was also different than what would happen in real life The would not always be a happy ending, and that s what I liked about the character structure.I wish that the stories would be slightly longer to give details in the plot I think I would be interested if a story was not rushed, so I would have time to think about each character At first I thought this would be a great book, but I was disappointed because of this I am not stating that it was rushed as in not enough effort, but rushed as in not enough structure I would love to read a book similar to this one, but maybe as in one story.
