This collection made me so happy. There were a couple of stories that I liked a little bit less than others, but all of the short stories were enjoyable. My personal favorites were Silver and Gold, Five Stars, Bloom, and Disaster. There is such a wide variety of stories in this collection, and I feel like there is something for everyone in it. The cast of characters is mostly LGBTQIA+, and it is also racially diverse. I read it in two sittings, but if you're looking for a collection of short stories that you can come back to when you have a little bit of free time, this is a great choice. Some of the stories made me laugh and some of them made me cry. There's a little bit of everything.
