I received a eARC of Uncommon Bodies for review. Unexpected travel cut into my time to read the whole book, however after reading one of the selections in the anthology, “Ruby and Deidre” by Robb Grindstaff, I bought the book as soon as I noticed that it was available today! Perhaps this selection resonated with me because in elementary school I was the tall girl. Fortunately others caught up with me and my plight was not that of the very tall, very lovely Deidre whose dreams of being on the stage seem hopeless because of her statue. Rudy, whose lack of height, renders him invisible to the beautiful Deidre, yearns for her to notice him. Told with a light but sure touch, it’s a delightful story. I look forward to reading all the selections, which as the title suggests, will indeed be uncommon.
