2015 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide by Marilag Angway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Like most anthologies, this one is a mixed bag–there are always some stories you’ll like better than others–but overall I am happy to give it 5 stars! It deserves the high rating for the sheer volume and breadth of ideas, settings, styles, and young protagonists who fill its pages. This anthology does a wonderful job of living up to its aspiration to make science fiction more accessible, diverse, and representative for all young readers. If you have a young reader (or are an older one) with a keen appreciation for the sense of wonder in science fiction, you should definitely check out this book! Looking forward to next year’s volume already.
