These stories are well-crafted. Some are especially poignant. If you've been in love, or suffered for love, you're sure to relate.

How They Met is the perfect collection of love stories. Why? Because it has something for everyone. Whether you're sobbing over your first breakup or sitting at home after a perfect date, you can find solace or encouragement or shared happiness in at least one of Levithan's eighteen short stories. From the little girl who sets her babysitter up with the barista boy of his dream, to prom dates gone awry, to the girl who pines over one waiter for years, How They Met is a book that tells of love in many forms, for many different people. Don't let this book pass you by—no matter who you are, or where you are in your life, there's something here for you.
