Good morning my dear librarians!
Love is in the air thanks to Stephanie Perkins’ collection of short romantic holiday-themed stories with contributions from her YA pals David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell among others.
“Rich language and careful, efficient character development make the collection an absorbing and sophisticated read, each story surprisingly fresh despite the constraints of a shared theme. It’s that rarest of short story collections: There’s not a single lump of coal.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Cute boys, mistletoe, counting down to the midnight kiss on New Year’s Eve—there’s no shortage of cozy setups for holiday romance in this captivating collection of short stories by a dozen of today’s top YA authors. Readers will also find a broad cross-section of other emotions and relationships in these tales about the significance of varied holiday traditions. A rare seasonal treat.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Holiday canoodling stories by twelve of the top YA authors? It’s a Christmas miracle! This is the substantive stuff of dream stockings: a rollicking, blush-inducing, memorable holiday collection of breezy, bite-sized stories perfect for a snug evening next to the fire.”–Booklist, starred review
“Never mind the winter holidays; booktalk this title all year round.”–School Library Journal, starred review
