I just finished reading The Bellhound - Four Tales of Modern Magic by Camille LaGuire. It's short, only four stories, but well worth the read. Each story is a stand alone with no spill-over characters. Camile LaGuire writes for the YA market.
The Bellhound of the book title is a humorous little "be careful what you wish for" story. The second story, Away He Run , is, according to Panzer, nearly purr-fect. Next up comes Trespasser which demonstrates the importance of standing up against bullies, no matter how powerful they are. And finally, Like The Wind, is a story about childhood belief and joy.
No spoilers here. You'll have to get your own copy to experience the magic!
