“An amazingly constructed collection. I honestly couldn’t put it down. Every single story is a wonderful piece of writing, which both stands alone and fits perfectly with this anthology’s intentions. The women in these stories are powerful, admirable and rebellious; but not always in ways you might expect… (RE)Sisters is nothing short of a beautiful collection.”
“It’s a joy to find YA that portrays girls as a dizzying kaleidoscope of strength, vulnerability and potential… These gorgeously written tales are fiction with a truth at its core. Thrilling, delightful, searing, painful, gripping, remarkable stories.”
(RE)Sisters is the latest short story collection from For Books’ Sake, published 8th February 2016. Ideal for YA and adult audiences alike, the anthology features the best new fiction from emerging women writers from across the globe.
Featuring a diverse range of characters, genres, styles and subject matters, the eighteen stories in (RE)Sisters include; a dystopian world where skin colour is changed by a sinister procedure; a spelling bee that stings like a wasp; a girl kept captive by a man with no heart; an indefinite hospital quarantine; a runaway best friend; a lost habit of checking shoes for scorpions; an abandoned bathtub; a stolen hot air balloon, and much, much more besides.
Compiled following a global call for submissions, (RE)Sisters explores today’s teenage girls’ fears, frustrations, strength, stories, potential, and power. A fierce, fearless and topical tribute to girls’ rebellion and resistance, (RE)Sisters is defiant, distinctive and unapologetic. Just like its heroines.

Flynn, Erin Darby Gesell, Jessica Glaisher, Valerie Hunter, Evangeline Jennings, Couri Johnson, Angela Kanter, Ioanna Mavrou, Lucy Middlemass, Emily Paull, Eliana Ramage, Anna Scott, Kaye Spivey and Alaina Symanovich.
