King, A. S. (Amy Sarig), 1970- (editor.). Anderson, M. T., Sweet everything. (contributor.). Charlton-Trujillo, e. E., La Concha. (contributor.). Levithan, David, Take it from me. (contributor.).

From David Levithan's story about a non-binary kid collecting pieces of other people's collections to Jenny Torres Sanchez's tale of a girl gathering types of fire while trying not to get burned to G. Neri's piece about 1970s skaters seeking opportunities to go vertical-- anything can be collected and in the hands of these award-winning and best-selling authors, any collection can tell a story. Nine of the best YA novelists working today have written fiction based on a prompt from Printz winner A.S. King (who also contributes to a story) and the result is itself an extraordinary collection.
