What lies on the other side of tomorrow? What if tomorrow was actually a doorway to another age--a new millennium? What does the world have in store for us? Or perhaps more important: What do we have in store for the world? As seen through the eyes of teens, here are eight stories that attempt to answer those questions. Offering their insight through humor, fantasy, and realism, today's most important writers for young adults play the role of visionaries in a collection you won't want to miss. Includes original stories by: Madeleine L'Engle, Richard Peck, Avi, Natalie Babbitt, Rita Williams-Garcia, Janet Taylor Lisle, Nancy Springer, and Michael Cadnum.

Some pretty amazing things have happened to Avi. It all began in 1970, with "Things That Sometimes Happen, " his first book. His novels include two Newbery Honor Books, "Nothing but the Truth" and "The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, " also the winner of the "Boston Globe-Horn Book" Award. Avi's fifty books tell mysterious, fantastical, and historical tales, and even an animal tale or two, like "Poppy" (also a "Boston Globe-Horn Book" Award recipient) and "The Christmas Rat." He lives with his family in Denver, Colorado.
