Everyone keeps secrets from themselves, from their families, from their friends and secrets have a habit of shaping the lives around them. Acclaimed author Ann Angel brings together some of today's most gifted YA authors to explore, in a variety of genres, the nature of secrets: Do they make you stronger or weaker? Do they alter your world when revealed? Do they divide your life into what you ll tell and what you won t? The one thing these diverse stories share is a glimpse into the secret self we all keep hidden.
