TITLE: How They Met, and Other Stories
AUTHOR: David Levithan
Publication Date: January 08, 2008
Genre: Young Adult, Short Stories, Romance
This book was a collection of short stories. These different short stories showed Levithan’s different approach of conveying love, heartbreaks, relationships, disappointments and happy endings. My favorite is the The Romantic Inclination…so nerdy.haha. (physics and chemistry! lol.) It was so funny and good, proves that friendship is an important element and dominant power in any romantic relationship.
Anyway, other stories were also great…covered a whole spectrum of scenarios about heartbreaks, happenstance, fate, closet gay, unrequited love, destiny, letting go, acceptance, pure happiness and joy, LGBT themes. 🙂 They will make you laugh, and some will make you sad, but all are completely enjoyable.
Must read! How They Met, and Other Stories is a book I highly recommend for everyone especially YA fans with short attention spans.
