This compelling audio collection of 15 #ownvoices short stories explores the realities of immigration and its abundant facets. The works are written by YA authors who are immigrants or the children of immigrants. Listeners will meet characters experiencing supposedly random police stops, making space for family displaced from a tumultuous home country, and continually being asked where they're from--when the answer might very well be the country they're already in. Each story is voiced by one of several narrators; each narrator matches the origin and gender of the characters in a particular work, creating an authentic performance with appropriate pronunciations and accent. While some performances exaggerate character voices so absurdly as to be comical, this captivating anthology will hook listeners nonetheless.
