The Lovereading4Kids comment

Romance isn’t dead – and it isn’t a soppy thing either! At least according to the twelve fabulous stories about love of all kinds that are included in this collection. Rainbow Rowell’s Midnights will strike a chord with all those who have almost let love slip away by being just too nice!; David Leviathan’s Your Temporary Santa is a superb blend of funny and touching as a boy takes on a ridiculous role to get closer to his boyfriend while Holly Black offers up some essential scheming to expose love of many different kinds. No one ever said that love was easy but it can be fun and, here at least, even the pain can be entertaining. ~ Julia Eccleshare
