Our customer reviews
The stories about how people meet and fall in love are as diverse as the couples themselves. From blind dates to chance encounters, the stories of "how we met" always seem to intrigue us. HOW THEY MET, AND OTHER STORIES is the latest book by David Levithan (BOY MEETS BOY). It is a collection of eighteen short stories about love, longing, and even lust. This wonderful group of stories includes brief crushes, relationships with happily-ever-after endings, and tales of love gone wrong. Among the stories: being fixed up by a six-year-old; two strangers meeting on a plane; coming out to your prom date; even the author's own story of how he credits his existence to a piano, a jeep, a college, and the Army. What makes this collection unique is that every story isn't about love being realized. In some cases, the potential only exists and even passes without materializing. No matter what your experience with love so far, you are sure to find hope, and maybe a hint of your own love story, within the pages of this book.show moreby TeensReadToo
