Urban fairy Honoria and her wife Shelagh are knee-deep in junk mail and overdue bills. Their bachelor apartment isn't big enough for the two of them and they spend their days at each other’s throats. Despite the difficulties of city life, Honoria's dead-set against using their magical powers. Even when Shelagh devises a plot to make money off fairy gold, her girl won't go for it. Honoria would rather steal the old-fashioned way than end up in a military facility after the government catches wind of their abilities--which isn't so far-fetched a concern. It happened to a friend of a friend. When Shelagh insists they can earn a living off cash-for-gold services, the irritable couple begins a career in small-time thievery. Who knew breaking and entering would be such fun?

A game of very adult let’s-pretend leads to a discovery that is very magical indeed, but that could destroy Jen’s life. Or could lift it to a whole new plane. What happens when rediscovering your youth leads to discovering something altogether new about yourself? (Novel-length contemporary fantasy ménage, FFM threesome)

A girl thought to be a boy steals her sister's skirt, while a boy thought to be a girl refuses to wear a cornflower blue dress. One boy's love of a soldier leads to the death of a stranger. The present takes a bittersweet journey into the past when a man revisits the summer school where he had "an accidental romance." And a forgotten mother writes a poignant letter to the teenage daughter she hasn't seen for fourteen years. Poised between the past and the future are the stories of now. In nontraditional narratives, short stories, and brief graphics, tales of anticipation and regret, eagerness and confusion present distinctively modern views of love, sexuality, and gender identification. Together, they reflect the vibrant possibilities available for young people learning to love others—and themselves—in today's multifaceted and quickly changing world.

Sternschnuppen sollen eigentlich Gluck bringen, vor allem in der Vorweihnachtszeit, aber Austen erlebt das glatte Gegenteil. An ihrem ersten Tag im neuen Job soll sie den Weihnachtsbaum in der Lobby schmucken, aber Dee, die stellvertretende Chefin der Firma und ein zwanghafter Kontrollfreak, ist mit der Anordnung der Kerzen so gar nicht zufrieden. Als Dee versucht, die Kerzen neu zu arrangieren, fallt ihr prompt der Stern, der die Spitze des Baumes ziert, auf den Kopf. Dee macht ihre Kopfwunde dafur verantwortlich, dass sie sich zu Austen hingezogen fuhlt. Sie ist entschlossen, ihre Gefuhle zu ignorieren, vor allem auch deshalb, weil Austen keine Ahnung hat, dass Dee ihre Vorgesetzte ist.
