But people don t need to remember how it felt to be happy and safe in the past They need to have hope that they can get there again in the future 3,6 5 stars average rating of all 12 short stories So while Laini Taylor s short story was stunningly beautiful and magical, there were others that really surprised me as well.I ve never read anything by Matt de la Pena and I must say I really loved Angels in the Snow Same thing applies to Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White.Of course,
