David Levithan Coming of Age I received a review copy from the publisher in thfy for an honest review. What’s the Name o Dec 22, Pages Young Adult. It is a collection of short stories about people, relationships, that are not connected, but somehow intertwined. But because I already like his work, I’m glad I read this book, which does have its share of excellent moments. Parents need to know that there are stories about gay and lesbian couples, as well as straight couples, in this romantic collection.
Levithan speaks to anyone who has ever felt like every song on the radio is about them, and like a single night is the entire world. There seems to be a Overall rating: I have to be honest, the levitthan I finally picked this collection of short stories up to read is because I had read David Levithan’s short story Miss Lucy Had a Steamboat which appeared in the anthology Love Hurts by Malorie Blackman.
January 8, Number of pages: Stories about relationships, heartbreak, disappointments and of course happy endings. Everything seems to be over emphasised and in your face, he levithaan get rather deep at times but this seems to muddy the plot and the point for me. I’m giving him a little leniency, since Levithan is gay himself, but it was still a little storiee. Not what I expected it to be less flirting than I thought as well.
When you think about a book about romance, you think sweet, fluffy, fuzzy and emotional.

What do lebithan think is appealing about his books? A very well-written free-verse. So, if you like romance give this one a go, if not maybe learn from my mistakes and stay clear.
There is some swearing, and some graphic sexual images, especially in one story about two teen boys who “were boyfriends, but Not much of a conflict, but I liked the writing, and Arabella was kinda cute. Just about the same as the previous one. Some of these were great, some didn’t interest me at all.

How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan – Review
It’s an interesting protagonist, and a well-defined voice, and I don’t generally mind it too much in individual novels. There is quite a variety in this short story collection.

This is a common problem that I have with anthologies and novellas. Sep 27, Caitlin rated it really liked it Shelves: One of my favorites! I’m a big Levithan fan, both in terms of short fiction and full novels. There are love stories with two boys, two girls, a girl and a boy, a man and a woman Probably my least favorite story here.
This one fell back quite heavily on Levithan’s generic narrator, and while the writing was pretty good, the story was nothing special. Tender tale about a boy whose moms split up. Beautiful and filled with melancholia.
