Wicked South: Secrets and Lies: Stories for Young Adults

Availability: Ready to download

For good or ill—on the page or in life—few things are more alluring than the siren song of a secret. At the heart of each story in this genre-crossing collection lies a secret. A boy who is not a boy at all, a neighbor with a mysterious identity, a tortured student with a list that isn’t what it seems, a girl who abandoned the person she used to be at the bottom of a river. For good or ill—on the page or in life—few things are more alluring than the siren song of a secret. At the heart of each story in this genre-crossing collection lies a secret. A boy who is not a boy at all, a neighbor with a mysterious identity, a tortured student with a list that isn’t what it seems, a girl who abandoned the person she used to be at the bottom of a river. Conflict and possibility are embedded in a secret’s very nature...betrayal and conspiracy are encoded in its DNA. Secrets can transform. They can alienate, anger, or inspire. One thing is for sure: They make a great story. WICKED SOUTH: SECRETS AND LIES is an anthology featuring young adult stories by authors from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Contributors are New York Times Bestselling author Emily Colin, Elizabeth DeVido, award-winning author Lauren Faulkenberry, Amy Hyatt Fonseca, Lauren Fulcher, award-winning author Robin Kirk, John Klekamp, Karissa Laurel, and Katie Rose Guest Pryal.

    4.5 stars** I'd like to thank Blue Crow Publishing and Librarything from choosing me to review this book early. It is hard to rate short story collections, especially when each story is different and written by different authors. In saying this I did actually enjoy almost all of the stories, except one. The one I didn't like is the last story in this book. I didn't think it was well-written and I thought some of the story was a little ridiculous. The concept itself was very interesting, I just tho 4.5 stars** I'd like to thank Blue Crow Publishing and Librarything from choosing me to review this book early.

    Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing in return for an honest review. The theme of this anthology of short stories for young adults is secret and lies and is written by various authors living in the Southern United Stated. All the stories are well written with an interesting twist. The last story is more like a novella then a true short story however I found it to be intriguing. It made me want to know more about the world it takes place in. Overall I really enjoyed reading Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing in return for an honest review.

My favorite story was "The List" but they were all very good.
