A toss-up between three and four stars. The best stories here are the more realistic in approach--"Hungry Self," the title story, "Summer, with Twins," a few others. Those are four or five star worthies. Just awesome.

The other stories are thought pieces that read like cut-rate Aimee Bender, and really, do we need anymore of Aimee Bender's thinly conceived think pieces? We do not. So those kind of dragged down my love of the book.

Still, half of it kicks ass. And so.
