Review quote

"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" (starred review) "There's no shortage of cozy setups for holiday romance in this captivating collection of short stories...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 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) "Stunning and diverse, this holiday anthology is pure magic. This is what all anthologies should aspire to be." --"RT Book Review," 4.5 stars, "Top Pick" "This collection of holiday stories reminds readers that while the season can be painful, it's also a time of hope. It's a marvelous collection, certain to earn a treasured spot on many Y.A. shelves." --"The New York Times Book Review " ""My True Love Gave to Me" is a plummy treat... Its best stories are worth savoring long past the seasonal expiration date and even beyond the teen years." --"The Washington Post ""Satisfying and just sweet enough, like a good Christmas cookie, this will obviously appeal to those readers who get out the holiday decorations the day after Halloween, and it may even convert a Scrooge or two." --"The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
