    Fun mix of short stories Some stories overuse flashbacks, descriptions and action tags A few stories felt forced My favorite stories are Into the Game by Williams Garcia, No Win Phoung by Alden R Carter and Winter Hibiscus by Minfong Ho, which I felt was the most powerful short story in the collection Godmother by Sharon Bell Mathis created excellent characters Bride Price by Linda Crew uses parts of Children of the River, a YA novel which I ve read several times and enjoy.
