About this title


In a dozen riveting new works of short fiction, written especially for this collection, popular contemporary authors explore the emotion-driven world of guns. From the grim reality of urban violence (in "Chalkman" by Rita Williams-Garcia) to a boy's first glimpse of manhood while target-shooting with Dad (in Ron Koertge's "Fresh Meat") to mercy killing (in Rob Thomas's "The War Chest"), the 12 stories included here are as different as the 12 authors themselves.

From the Publisher:

Today's most popular young adult writers, including Walter Dean Myers, Rita Williams-Garcia, Richard Peck, and Chris Lynch, explore the complex and heated gun debate in 12 riveting short stories.

"This will be a valuable addition to Young Adult collections: it's not only timely and thought-provoking, but also an excellent springboard for discussion."
--Booklist, *starred
