Description

Familiar tropes, unique twists, all the feels.
Grab a snack, some tissues, and try not to fall in love with this playful anthology that explores or reimagines a well-known trope about love from some of the most talented and captivating voices in the YA space today. Each trope acts as a prompt and inspiration for a different story, as well as serves as the main thread throughout the collection, while also allowing each author to put their own spin on these classic favorites that are sure to steal your heart including:

* "Enemies-to-Lovers": Two boys from rival schools are forced to share a room the night before their championship baseball game. What begins as their mutual nightmare just might just turn to something more between the two of them.

* "Fake Dating": Every year, Rachel's siblings and cousins bring dates to the family Hanukkah party, but Rachel always flies solo. Tired of everyone asking when she's going to meet a nice Jewish boy (or girl), she asks Matthew Klein to be her fake date. The only problem? He may have accepted her invitation only because he has a crush on her sister.

* "Kissing Under the Influence": Two interns in the Department for Unexplained Phenomena are assigned to investigate a city that seems to have disappeared. Antics (including a mistaken ensorcellment and an unexpected declaration of love) ensue.
