                       MY REVIEW 
  This is a anthology of special stories  with a diverse cast of characters . Each story has a a special girl that is stronger then she realizes and won't let their disability stop them .  They are all unique with unique powers . Some of my favourite stories had me wanting more . 
Wind and Silk 
Fangying is a young woman who comes from a long line of singers . But she has a stutter and can't get around very well so she uses a wheelchair. She is married of to a man she doesn't know and taken to a place that is scary . She is unsure of herself but when the man she could love is hurt . She takes on new wings and finds the song inside of her .
 This story had me wanting so much more . The characters were great and I really felt I got to know these characters . 

another story that got me was 
Grace and Ghosts 
When a young girl can see ghosts after the tragic death of her mother . She feels shunned until a boy from school asks her to help find out the truth of his brother's death. 
 i truly enjoyed this book and the characters were developed and I feel like this story could be expanded into a full length paranormal mystery book . 

   Each story in this anthology was well written and had my attention through out . I can't believe there haven't been other anthologies written like this . There is some stronger stories and some that are just a little weaker . Over all this a great anthology that I think your teens would love to read . So if you want a fun read that has diverse characters with unique abilities this is the book for you . Check it out.
