book review: pretty monsters

Kelly Link’s collection of short stories called Pretty Monsters is just so much awesomeness crammed between two covers. I know I’ve read Magic For Beginners before, but the rest of the stories were new to me and they were so good and so weird. I loved the metatext of the title story which might be about werewolves. Also, Shaun Tan did the art, with an illustration before each story. This one is a good YA fantasy read since all the protagonists are young, but there’s nothing stopping adults from reading it too.
