I am obviously (slightly) biased because I have a story in this anthology but the 5 stars and this review is for all of the other authors and stories in this anthology because WOW. They are beyond talented and have put together such wonderful stories about moving in, moving out, and moving on.

For most of these authors, it was my first time reading their work and honestly, I'm struck by how brilliantly talented they all are, along with the amount of diversity within this collection. There's a li

This was such a beautiful anthology! The theme of "moving on" is a unique one that ties together all these stories perfectly. Though they follow the same general theme, each one is so unique, and brings a whole new world to the page. I also loved the wide range of topics and issues these stories covered. Some were more fun, some were more serious, some added sci fi/fantasy while others dealt with our daily lives and interpersonal emotions. I highly recommend it :) ...more

I loved the connecting theme of movement in this anthology. I also loved that most (if not all, I can't remember) of the authors and main characters were non-white of several cultures and countries. Some of the stories were only a couple of pages long, which was a little surprising, but the later ones got longer. Personally my favourite was the last one, In Support of the One Child Policy by Katie Zhao.

There were some formatting issues in some of the story though.

I read this entire anthology in one night. It was the night before I went back to work after a break and I should've spent slept, but I ended up sleeping up at 2 a.m. because I couldn't put it down before I was finished with all the entries.

There's just something special about stories written by authors of colors, and otherwise marginalized people. They added depth and nuance to the theme of "moving on" that couldn't have been achieved without the struggle that comes with being a marginalized au

Guys, this anthology is amazing! The stories are so good! I even cried a little. Every writer has a clear voice and the stories go from sweet to heartbreaking to comforting. And you will find just about everything in there: there are giant robots, a trip to another world, friendships, family relationships, food! So much food!

Give it a chance and I'm sure you'll find something you like.
