From Booklist:

Gr. 7^-12. Hoping to spur readers to reexamine their lives and how they think about and treat others, Muse has collected 15 fine stories in a rich anthology that deals with issues of prejudice. Excerpts from Lynda Barry's Good Times Are Killing Me, Fran Arrick's Chernowitz!, Kate Walker's Peter, and Ntozake Shange's Betsey Brown, among others, join short stories by such writers as Sandra Cisneros, Julie Blackwoman, Flannery O'Conner, Chris Crutcher, and Lois Gould. What's so great about Muse's anthology is that the selections make such good reading on their own that YAs will enjoy them as well as learn from them; thus, this can serve not only as curriculum-support values material, but also as recreational reading. Author profiles and a bibliography of pertinent nonfiction and journals are appended. Sally Estes

Review:

Muse's collection gathers stories about prejudice, ignorance and transformation, presenting young adult readers with a variety of literary selections from writers ranging from Jacqueline Woodson to Flannery O'Connor. These are powerful presentations holding many important lessons on the variety and nature of presumptions. -- Midwest Book Review
