Remember what it was like to be sixteen? Whether it was the year your teeth were finally free of braces or the year you "went all the way," that magical yet mystical age is something you will never forget. Edited by Megan McCafferty, author of the runaway hit novels Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings, SIXTEEN- STORIES ABOUT THAT SWEET (AND BITTER) BIRTHDAY is a compilation of short stories inspired by all the angst, melodrama, and wonderment of being sixteen. Zoe Trope's "Relent/Persist" is a love story for the electronic age-two lonely souls develop a close relationship through web- sites, email, and Instant Messenger. In Julianna Baggott's "The Future Lives of Emily Milty," an overshadowed younger sister begins to come out of her shell and create her own identity. And the tide character in Ned Vizzini's "Rucford Becomes a Man" celebrates his birthday in the Wild West, where his father's idea of a birthday present is taking him to a brothel. These are only a few of the stories featured in this collection by some of today's top YA and adult fiction writers, including Meg Cabot, bestselling author of The Princess Diaries; Joseph Weisberg, author of 10th Grade, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; and Sonya Sones, whose novel-in-verse, Stop Pretending- What Happened When My Big Sister Went Crazy, won several awards and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Other writers who have contributed stories are Steve Almond, Cat Auer, Tanuja Desai Hidier, Sarah Dessen, Emma Forrest, Carolyn Mackler, and John Searles. In addition, McCafferty will contribute a story featuring Jessica Darling, the wry, feisty teenage heroine from her popular books. In this preque to Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings, readers will learn about the last fifteen minutes Jessica spends-or rather, doesn't spend-with her best friend Hope before Hope leaves Pineville. Filled with hilarious, poignant, and touching tales about this milestone in our lives, SIXTEEN is perfect for teen readers (especially those who are anxious to read about Jessica Darling again!) and for nostalgic adults who want to reminisce about their "sweetest" year.… (plus d'informations)

Apparently a girl's sixteenth birthday is supposed to be the be all to end all of all birthdays. It's supposed to be the year when your life begins. When everything of interest starts to happen to you. The cute guy right by your locker will finally notice you and your kick-ass boobs. The meanest girl in school will finally bow to your awesomeness and you'll get the chance to be a total bitch to her. It's supposed to be the year you look back at and think "Man, those were the days. The sneaking out, the making out, the doing of drugs...God, how I miss those days!!!" Of course, then you have the other scenario. The year in which you get your heart broken for the first time. The year you realize that actually getting your license and getting a car means paying gas. The year you realize life sometimes just blows no matter how old you are. My sixteenth year....was nothing like either of these scenarios.

The angst filled sixteenth year was something that I avoided. It was actually very anti-climactic. Not to say that nothing of interest didn't happen. It just wasn't very book or movie worthy. I seemed to avoid all of the major drama associated with being sixteen. Does that mean I'm lucky that I didn't get to go through the angst? Or unlucky because being sixteen wasn't extremely memorable to me and I therefore don't have any hilarious antidotes or earth-shattering, wrist slicing, drama to talk about? I don't know. What I do know is that I get to relive my 16th year vicariously through Sixteen.

Not being a fan of short story compilations, I was surprised that I loved Sixteen and raced through it. There's a story in here for everyone. You want something angsty read The Grief Diet. You want something in the vein of all of the other cheesy '80's movies read The Perfect Kiss. You want something that makes you think back at those days when you thought nothing embarrassing could ever happen to you because this is in fact real life and not a movie, read Cat Got Your Tongue?.

Sure there were a couple of stories in here while were not really clunkers, they were not as great as the rest. It's inevitable with a short story compilation. But still, the majority of the these stories were amazing and brought me back to my high school years and the angst that goes along with it(just because my 16th year wasn't that memorable doesn't mean my 17th wasn't...). I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to revisit the feeling you had when you were sixteen or just to laugh at the rest and think "Thank God that didn't happen to me!" ( )

The stories in this anthology are well written and run the gamut from funny to heartwrenching as the authors explore a range of feelings. Teens and adults will enjoy and relate to these tales.
