Okay, Maybe I'm Late On This, but...

Ooh, ooh, ooh, have you heard about THIS?! A single YA/MG novel written in ten voices! Click.
The authors include the fabulous Eoin Colfer, as well as Linda Sue Park, Nick Hornby and others. The premise is apparently based on a box of seashells from all over the world -- which makes openings for stories attached to each of them.

THIS is the type of stuff I love -- what a fabulous project! What a great idea! Someday, maybe when I'm famous (hah) I will get invited to join these types of things. This is kind of what my writing group and I tried to begin a year and a half ago -- we invented a town and tried to write ten short stories based in the town. Part slipstream fiction, part linked story cycles -- and entirely fun. two chapters from the novel are included in NPR's report. Go! Read! Enjoy!

I saw this in the bookstore last week and totally coveted it! Then I forgot to check in the library. Of course, now I'm totally committed to Cybils reading for the next couple of months, but it might go onto my Christmas list...

Think it's too new to be in most libraries, but definitely think Christmas!
