Synopsis

Girl Meets Boy by Kelly Milner Halls

What do guys and girls really think? Twelve of the most dynamic and engaging young American authors writing today team up for this one-of-a-kind collection of he said/she said stories where he tells it from the guy's point of view, she tells it from the girl's. Stories of love and heartbreak, like the good-looking guy who falls for a dangerous girl and the flipside of the girl who never learns to be loved; a basketball star and the artistic (and shorter) boy she never knew she wanted; and a gay boy looking for love online and the girl who could help make it happen, teach us that relationships become complicated because there are two sides to every story.

Reviews

Passionate - Booklist Not every set of stories works out perfectly: some are happy and others messy, giving the collection as a whole authenticity - School Library Journal This is a masterful collection. --Teri Lesesne, LS 5385 Blog The stories are thus surprising and varied, avoiding any sort of formulaic treatment of relationship dynamics and giving full weight to the complexities of what can happen when a girl meets a boy - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A strong choice for older teen readers - VOYA [A] proliferation of romance and hormonally charged electricity - VOYA A strong choice for older teen readers - VOYA Each of the authors excels at creating vibrant, sympathetic, honest characters with voices that will appeal to older teens, male and female alike.... A superb offering. -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
