Synopsis

A collection of stories about love from the New York Times bestselling author of Every Day and Two Boys Kissing.





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.





David Levithan is no stranger to exploring love in all its complexity and variety as showcased in Boy Meets Boy, Every Day, Another Day, and Two Boys Kissing.





'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





David is the New York Times best-selling author of Boy Meets Boy and Marly's Ghost. While among his many collaborations are Will Grayson, Will Grayson with Fault in Our Stars author John Green, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohn, which became a major film. Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson, now has his own novel: Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. David is also a highly respected children's book editor, whose list includes many luminaries of children's literature, including Garth Nix, Libba Bray and Suzanne Collins. He lives and works in New York.

Staff Choice

How They Met consists of 18 short stories about love. As Levithan says in the Author’s Note, these aren’t love stories. The usual connotation of “love story” is a story with a happy ending, and with these stories, that’s not always the case. There’s heartache, break-ups, realisations and epiphanies about relationships, beginnings, ends, middles and everything in between. What I love most about these stories are most are told in first person, and for a while, you’re unsure of the gender of the narrator. You find out eventually, but until you do, you’re not aware of whether the story is an LGBTQ story or a heterosexual story. It means you can relate to the feelings straight away, each story is universal from the get go. Such a fantastic collection of stories, so completely beautiful!
