Like any collection, there were ups and downs, but this one has some very high ups and the downs aren't too low.

David Levithan's and Emma Donoghue's stories made me cry. Jennifer Finney Boylan's was also great. Those are the most memorable, but when I flipped back through I found myself saying "oh yeah, that was good too. And that one was interesting."

Probably my least favorite was a very blah attempt at free verse by Julie Anne Peters, though I like many of her other books.
