This modern, groundbreaking YA anthology explores the complexity and beauty of interracial and LGBTQ+ relationships where differences are front and center. When people ask me what this anthology is about, I'm often tempted to give them the complicated answer: it's about race, and about how being different from the person you love can matter but how it can also not matter, and it's about Chinese pirate ghosts, black girl vigilantes, colonial India, a flower festival, a garden of poisons, and so, so much else. Honestly, though? I think the answer's much simpler than that. Color outside the Lines is a collection of stories about young, fierce, brilliantly hopeful people in love.-Sangu Mandanna, editor of Color outside the Lines

"Listeners will find themselves drawn into the hope and possibility of young love with this powerful and inclusive anthology. The stories feature individuals within the queer community who are representative of diverse racial and cultural backgrounds. The ensemble of narrators adds to the varied stories and infuses the selections with empathy and compassion. The narrators are well matched to stories that address multiple issues in their depictions of love: family, acceptance, difference, class, discrimination, acceptance, and more. There are several standouts including "Turn the Sky to Petals" and "Gilman Street," narrated by Maria Liatis, "Your Life Matters," narrated by Channie Waites, and "The Boy Is," narrated by Catherine Ho.
