Fresh Ink: An Anthology by Lamar Giles

Fresh Ink is an anthology of stories edited by Lamar Giles from the We Need Diverse Books organization that also created Flying Lessons and Other Stories, which I really enjoyed. I came into this anthology with high expectations and I was not disappointed. They each gave just a glimpse into a life, which left you wanting more. I would have to say that my favorite one was about the transgender swimmer, Tommy, who is just beginning his transition. This one was really cool because it was written by Schuler Bailar because he is a real swimmer and this story is based on his life. I think that this book would be fun to read in a group because there is a lot of discussions to be had about the ending of each story.
