    This was a quaint collection of stories all most very loosely tied around the cities they were based in Some of the stories stuck with me than others, but nothing really struck me the way others have in the past Not sure if I should have spent the time reading this, although I m sure as usual poignant images will stick with me long after I m done reading it There was a bit of impressive writing in here, but nothing to knock your socks off I d say unless you re an avid short story reader, there are plenty of other places to look.

    I read this a few years ago, but remember enjoying it I met Anna Sophie Loewenberg, one of the contributing authors, but haven t seen anything written from her The book, however, on the whole fun.

    Overall tight but, as with all collections, some of the stories were blah and others awesome Borderlines, by Calla Devlin, knocked me out Summer of Mopeds, by Courtney Eldridge, started out strong and then got tedious All the rest were good to great.

    This is really good I loved so many stories in here, and there really weren t any weak links About as good an anthology as I could hope for.
