Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories
Everyone leads a busy life these days and what could be better for busy readers than a book of short stories? Stephanie Perkins has edited an incredible compilation of twelve short love stories for young adults. Each story is unique and memorable. This collection will introduce readers to fantastical creatures, take them to an all horror movie theater, a country club, up a mountain, on a camping adventure, and more.
Not only is every story extremely well-written and engaging, but there is a wonderful balance of diversity in these stories. Several of the love stories are LGBT and the cast of characters is racially diverse as well.
The theme of first love could have lent itself to sappiness and sentimentality, but these stories will put you through the range of emotions. There is certainly something for everyone here. Be prepared to laugh out loud, get misty eyed, and even get a little scared.
I really enjoyed reading this collection and found myself wishing many of these characters will get books of their own.
