First Crossing: Stories About Teen Immigrants by Donald R. Gallo

Stories by eleven well-known authors touch on a variety of teen experiences, with enough attitude and angst to speak to young adults anywhere. — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Fleeing from political violence in Venezuela, Amina and her family have settled in the United States. Sarah, adopted, is desperate to know her Korean birth parents. Adrian’s friends have some spooky — and hilarious — misconceptions about his Romanian origins. Whether their transition is from Mexico to the United States or from Palestine to New Mexico, the characters in this anthology have all ventured far and have faced countless challenges. Each of these stories is unique, and each one has something to say to all of us.

Pulling up Stakes and Other Piercing Stories

Many things can pierce — sharpened stakes, fencing swords, cat's claws, short stories, ideas, earrings, and love, to name just a few. This collection of eleven penetrating stories, gathered from my contributions to YA anthologies, contains some of my favorite pieces, including a slapstick account of a young man sent on a mortifying mission by the girl he loves, a tale about the mysteries of faith and belief, and a comedy of errors where a Transylvanian immigrant arouses suspicion in the darkness of the Alaskan winter. I've had the pleasure of writing short stories for the best anthologists in the YA world. Now, I have the pleasure of sharing those stories with my readers in one sharp collection. Each story in this collection began with an act of courage, though not on my part. Nearly a dozen times, an author or editor took a deep breath and made the splendidly dangerous decision to create an anthology. I would never be so bold.

I love short stories. I love reading them, and I love writing them. It could be worse. I could be in love with crafting haiku or constructing sonnets. In either of those cases, I definitely would have had a hard time turning pro. As any Renaissance scholar can tell you, the sonnet market collapsed once people realized Petrarch was running a Ponte scheme, and never really recovered. And when it comes to methods for turning haiku into cash, the less said, the better.
