The 13 stories in this volume follow the theme of feeling trapped and as the sub-title states: cages of the mind and body. It's a theme everyone can relate to, especially teens. Some are funny, some are not, a couple on the disturbing side, but all of them get you thinking. I enjoyed eight out of thirteen of the stories. The Woeful Princess(David Skinner), Fountain Of Youth(Mark Talbet) and Sheep(Rob Thomas) were my favorites. I think Lois Duncan put together a great collection. As much as I like her novels, her short story here doesn't quite make it for me.

This book is a collection of short stories by wonderful writers like Dean Micheal Myers, Lois Lowry, and the author of the book Lois Duncan. In each story the protaganists are trapped in their own reality, in becoming the fittest girl and doing what it takes to accomlish that to being trapped in the reality of work. There is always an authors note at the end of each short story to help the reader understand to why the short was written. This book is great because it is not one story is fool of different meanings about being trapped.
