StoriesBook - 2010
Through the lens of Kelly Link's vivid imagination, nothing is what it seems, and everything deserves a second look. From the multiple award- winning "The Faery Handbag," in which a teenager's grandmother carries an entire village (or is it a man-eating dog?) in her handbag, to the near-future of "The Surfer," whose narrator (a soccer-playing skeptic) waits with a planeload of refugees for the aliens to arrive, these ten stories are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world. Kelly Link's fans range from Michael Chabon to Peter Buck of R.E.M. to Holly Black of Spiderwick Chronicles fame. Now teens can have their world rocked too!

"I need you to steal three books," Fox says. "From a library in a place called Iowa."
"I know Iowa," Jeremy says. "I mean, I've never been there, but it's a real place. I could go there."
"I'm going to tell you the books you need to steal," Fox says. "Author, title, and the jewelly festival number--"
"Dewey decimal," Jeremy says. "It's actually called the Dewey decimal number in real libraries."
"Real," Fox says, sounding amused.
