In the near and alternate future in which dreaming is rare, and “professional dreamers” even rarer, a teen adoptee discovers she has a gift and examines its implications…

A mixed Black girl embarks on a quest to be as Black as possible in the eyes of her peers…

There is no universal adoption experience, and no two adoptees have the same story. This anthology for teens edited by Shannon Gibney and Nicole Chung contains a wide range of powerful, poignant, and evocative stories in a variety of genres.These tales from fifteen bestselling, acclaimed, and emerging adoptee authors genuinely and authentically reflect the complexity, breadth, and depth of adoptee experiences.This groundbreaking collection centers what it’s like growing up as an adoptee. These are stories by adoptees, for adoptees, reclaiming their own narratives.
