Can't Wait Wednesday The Stubborn Seeds of Hope

Blurb: A collection of gripping short stories themed around fear and hope written by internationally acclaimed children’s author Brian Falkner. A boy helps his sister disguise her birthmark on her first day of school. A seventeen-year-old awakens to find himself trapped in an elderly body. A teenage girl discovers her boyfriend has a life-threatening virus the day after they share their first kiss. A high school student tries to communicate to his hospitalised brother who is in a vegetative state. Brian Falkner serves up bite-sized tales of fear – fear of rejection, fear of dying, fear of disease, fear of the unknown, fear of exclusion, fear of being caught and fear of embarrassment – showing how that stubborn seed of hope hungers our darkest moments.

Hope is a dangerous this. A beautiful thing, isn’t it? There’s so much here that speaks to me — that will speak to many readers, in fact. What do you think??
