For good or ill—on the page or in life—few things are more alluring than the siren song of a secret.

At the heart of each story in this genre-crossing collection lies a secret. A boy who is not a boy at all, a neighbor with a mysterious identity, a tortured student with a list that isn’t what it seems, a girl who abandoned the person she used to be at the bottom of a river.

This was an excellent, fun and exciting group of stories. All of them different, and the writing is beyond excellent. I feel as if I have a perfect new collection of writers to follow and read. This book of stories will be enjoyable to many readers and ages. Fantastic!!

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing in return for an honest review.

The theme of this anthology of short stories for young adults is secret and lies and is written by various authors living in the Southern United Stated. All the stories are well written with an interesting twist. The last story is more like a novella then a true short story however I found it to be intriguing. It made me want to know more about the world it takes place in. Overall I really enjoyed reading
