The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning David Levithan captures the joy and the despair that accompany the many different ways of falling in and out of love. In 18 vivid, beautifully written short stories he is funny, warm-hearted, passionate, romantic, furious and just plain sexy as befits the nature of each of these relationships. However casually some of them are formed, however long or short they last, there is no doubting the importance of them all to those they effect so powerfully.
How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan
They met on a plane / at Starbucks / in class. It was a set-up / it was completely random / they were dancing. It was love at first sight / it took time / it was a disaster!
Love is a complicated, addictive, volatile, scary, wonderful thing. Many of the stories in this collection started out as gifts for the author's friends. From the happy-ever-after to the unrequited, they explore the many aspects of the emotion that has at some time turned us all inside out and upside down.
A new edition of a title never before published in the UK.
Every Day is a wonder: a wholly original premise racing along with a generous heart towards a perfect ending. The best YA makes a place for its readers, and there are few writers as warmly generous as David Levithan. Patrick Ness, award-winning author of the Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls.
