The Lovereading4Kids comment
February 2015 Short Story Collection of the Month Malorie Blackman has compiled a collection of short stories from some of the best young adult authors writing today. For anyone who has ever loved and lost - and loved again - it will amuse, entertain, surprise and maybe provoke thought and discussion... Every one of the extracts and short stories contained in this collection are favourites of Malorie's; both old and new. This anthology also provides a brilliant opportunity for every reader to whet their appetite and encourage them to seek out more books by these talented authors.
A Piece of Passion from the Editor: "Malorie Blackman brings together the best teen writers of today in a stunningly romantic collection about love against the odds. Featuring short stories and extracts about modern star-crossed lovers from stars such as Gayle Forman, Markus Zusak and Patrick Ness, and with a brand-new story from Malorie Blackman herself, Love Hurts looks at every kind of relationship, from first kiss to final heartbreak."
and from Malorie Blackman: "The stories in this anthology aren't all hearts and flowers. God forbid! I like my love stories to have a bit of spice and bite. These stories contain love lost, love found, the start of love, the end of love, love bitter and love sweet. I truly believe there is something in this anthology for everyone."
