When I first heard that one of my favorite authors contributed to this anthology, I wanted to read it. I enjoyed this book when I read some of the authors stories I couldn't believe how open these authors were sharing their personal stories and reaching out to people.
One I enjoyed a lot was Lauren Kate's story, she opened up more on how she came to write The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove.
R.L Stien had a moving story in here as well. I think this is a book that should be read by everyone child, parent teacher everyone. It's deeply moving and very emotional. A wonderful anthology. The stories are only about 3-5 pages long each and with each new story it's a new voice so it's easy to read the book in one sitting.
The best part is a portion of the money from the book is donated to charity.
