Tasting Light – short stories

A.R. Capetta & Wade Roush

This is a highly-recommended set of short stories which sets out to examine contemporary issues such as identity, diversity and belonging within different futuristic settings. Whether it be a world where robots roam with human consciousness, a society where you can change everything about how you look or even the ability to taste light; teenage readers will relate to each story through the wide range of emotions the characters experience: hope, anger, fear and love. 

This is a thought-provoking, original collection that challenges the reader to rethink their attitudes and values.
