David Levithan’s How They Met, and Other Stories is a collection of short stories, many of which were written as Valentine’s Day gifts for his friends and family. There’s a whole array of these love stories – or as David Levithan calls them, “stories about love.” There’s at least one story here for everyone, no matter what you’re looking for.
I just checked this book out from the library less than three days ago, and once I started reading it, I finished it incredibly quickly – less than a day later! I thought it was a really great anthology; normally I might read most of the short stories in one, but I read every single one in How They Met. What makes this book especially cool (besides David Levithan’s amazing writing) is that it actually includes several stories that he wrote as a teen, and those stories are just as good as the ones he wrote an adult. It’s really cool to see how some of our favourite authors really just started out like us.
