So many realistic fiction books aren't really that realistic. The boy gets the girl. They go to some prestigious school. A valuable lesson is learned at the end of the book. Suddenly, when you look closely, all the books become the same. Same plot-lines, same character tropes, and the reason is because they are successful. But not very relatable. This collection of short stories' job is to be that relatable book. Everything in it is based on true stories and includes a diverse cast of characters. So young adult readers can finally find that piece of themselves inside every story.
