really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult, short-stories

Normally I don't read short stories. They just don't do anything for me, because I feel like there's not enough time for world building, character development, plot development, basically anything. It's also hard to review short story collections, because most of the time there are some good ones (at least hopefully) and some real stinkers.

In this collection I really enjoyed most of the stories. This topic (geeky YA stories) was great for short stories. I enjoyed what I was reading, but I realize most of these stories in novel form would bore and possibly annoy me. I think there was just one story, Secret Identity, that I really did not like at all. For one thing, it was way too long, and I also just didn't get it. It did get slightly better by the end of the story, but not enough to redeem it.
