How They Met and Other Stories
Eighteen stories, all about love, and about all kinds of love. From the aching for the one you pine for, to standing up and speaking up for the one you love, to pure joy and happiness, these love stories run the gamut of that emotion that at some point has turned every one of us inside out and upside down. What is love? With this original story collection David Levithan proves that love is a varied, complicated, addictive, wonderful thing.

'Teens and older young adults will find themselves here and likely learn a little about that many-splendoured emotion.' Kirkus Reviews on How They Met and Other Stories 'A complete romp...the novel is so tightly woven that it begins to feel miraculous...Will Grayson, Will Grayson is so funny, rude and original that by the time flowers hit the stage after Hold Me Closer, even the musical-averse will cheer.' New York Times on Will Grayson, Will Grayson 'David Levithan's latest release is timely and important but, most of all, it is astonishingly sophisticated...Levithan has outdone himself.' Courier Mail on Two Boys Kissing '[A] literary gem.' Girlfriend Magazine on Every Day 'Levithan's self-conscious, analytical style marries perfectly with the plot. His musings on love, longing and human nature knit seamlessly with A's journey. Readers will devour his trademark poetic wordplay and cadences that feel as fresh as they were when he wrote Boy Meets Boy (2003). An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender.' Kirkus Reviews on Every Day
