From the Publisher:
Just in time for Valentine’s Day comes a confection from David Levithan that is sure to have fans of Boy Meets Boy eager to devour it. Here are 18 stories, all about love, all kinds of love. From the aching for the one you pine for, to standing up and speaking up for the one you love, to pure joy and happiness, these love stories run the gamut of that emotion that at some point has turned every one of us inside out and upside down.

What is love? With this original story collection, David Levithan proves that love is a many splendored thing, a varied, complicated, addictive, wonderful thing.
Romance comes in a baffling variety of forms, and young adult author David Levithan has created a wonderful selection of love stories about the intricacies of meeting someone for the first time. Levithan began writing his first love story when he was bored in high school physics class, and a years-long tradition of Valentine's stories began. Whether the love is forever or just for right now, he follows each couple--both gay and straight--through their rhythms and moods with whimsy, tenderness, and the occasional righteous fury. In "Starbucks Boy" a six-year-old is so successful at matchmaking she loses multiple babysitters, while happiness is not to be had in "The Good Witch" as a boy realizes he's definitely not straight while on a doomed prom date. With 18 stories in total.


"Teens and older young adults will find themselves here and likely learn a little about that many-splendored emotion." 11/15/2007

"Each richly imagined story will tap familiar veins of longing, memory, and anticipation, often at the same time; some are moving enough to elicit tears, others lend themselves more to affirming nods and satisfied sighs. While many of the stories are tinged with nostalgia, they are never offputting or condescending, but rather empathetic to the present circumstances of younger readers and reassuring that this moment in their lives if both important and fleeting." 1/1/2008
