BOOR: Firsts and Lasts: 16 Stories from Our World and Beyond ed by Laura Silverman

We love an anthology and y’all should be super excited for Firsts and Lasts, with 16 stories and over half of them feature queer or BIPOC characters, dealing with new experiences and those final moments that teenagers face on their journey into adulthood. This anthology is also slightly different than others because the stories aren’t pegged into one genre, so there are contemporary stories, fantasy, and paranormal! Grab this anthology on September 26th!

Thank you to Penguin Workshop for the finished copy!

An exciting fiction YA anthology that celebrates the new experiences and final moments teenagers face on their journey into adulthood from editor Laura Silverman and a cast of spectacular contributors.

From first breakups and romantic vampire encounters to last band performances and the deadly end of a friendship, Firsts and Lasts is an anthology that is just as unpredictable as being a teenager. While each of these stories span different genres and styles, they all perfectly capture the big emotions--confusion, joy, uneasiness, and anticipation--that many teens experience as they grow up.

Whether you are hopelessly in love and not sure how to tell your crush, going through loss and can't fully process it, or just trying to figure out where you belong in the world, this collection of sixteen stories has something for every reader.

Stories written by: Adi Alsaid, Keah Brown, Monica Gomez-Hira, Kika Hatzopoulou, Shaun David Hutchinson, Amanda Joy, Loan Le, Joy McCullough, Yamile Saied M�ndez, Anna Meriano, Nina Moreno, Tess Sharpe, Laura Silverman, Rachel Lynn Solomon, Diana Urban, and Julian Winters.
