About the Author:

Nancy E. Mercado lives in Brooklyn, NY.

From Booklist:

Gr. 10-12. For this collection, 10 new and established male authors of YA fiction were asked to write a short story exploring aspects of young manhood. Walter Dean Myers presents a supercool dude who places an ad inviting girls to apply for a date to the prom with him and meets his match in the no-nonsense, winning applicant. David Lubar's central character is a high-school student with multiple piercings, who comes to realize that his beautiful girlfriend has chosen him mainly to shock her parents. Craig Thompson contributes a graphic short story about the difficulties of fitting into the ever important adolescent groups and then finding the even more important girlfriend. David Levithan writes an insightful story of a young gay dancer who brings a male date to his little brother's Bar Mitzvah. The stories are by turns insightful, funny, and entertaining, and many readers, boys and girls alike, will welcome the glimpses into various male experiences. Suggest also Guys Write for Guys Read (2005), edited by Jon Scieszka, a similarly themed collection for slightly younger readers. Todd Morning
