Grade 6-9 Like its predecessor, Sixteen (Delacorte, 1984), Visions is comprised of never-before published short stories by well-known authors of young adult fiction such as Norma Fox Mazer, M. E. Kerr, Richard Peck, and Jane Yolen. The memorable pieces are those that deal sensitively with larger issues such as child molestation (``The Good Girls'' by Fran Arrick), coming of age in mythic dimensions (``Words of Power'' by Jane Yolen), or death and loss of innocence (``Sweet Perfume of Goodbye'' by M. E. Kerr and ``Jeremiah's Song'' by Walter Dean Myers). The remainder of the collection is solid and worthwhile. Gallo has provided background notes which are extremely effective and helpful in leading readers to other work by their favorite authors in the collection. This title belongs, with Sixteen and Peter A. Barrett's To Break the Silence (Dell, 1986), on the shelves of most libraries with a young adult readership.

An exciting collection of 19 never-before-published short stories by such renowned writers as M. E. Kerr, Joan Aiken, Richard Peck, Walter Dean Myers and Susan Beth Pfeffer. The appeal of this collection lies in the variety of its themes, moods and and cultural contexts. Themes range from ghosts and heroism, to love and familial relationships; from running away to growing up and looking to the future; from physical abuse to research in space. Each story's mood is distinct, lively and tersely depicted; readers will relish gliding from one writer's world into the next. The diverse selections are combined beautifully into a thought-provoking and enlightening collection of high literary quality. Each selection is enhanced by a short biography of the author that lists past and most recent works. Ages 12-up.
