How They Met and Other Stories

Tey are straight stories but most of them were about you know lgbt’s. But I don’t regret gulping this up one bit. I loved how every story had its own unique elements that made the stories work.

The transitions were weird. Very well-written, with a hoe sense of humor, and excellent brevity. But How They Met and Other Stories covered a whole spectrum of scenarios featuring love, not romance, from the closet gay, the unrequited love, the gay guy who is dating a female just for the sake of it, people who are just meant to be or couples who are just dating for the now.

This one had a great narrator – she definitely broke the pattern that a lot of other narrators in this story set – but it relied too much on narrative summary for my taste. The narrator is a very realistic person, and I enjoyed his arc throughout the story.

How They Met, and Other Stories

Stories that will now live on, whether in fame or infamy. What it says on the can.

I have to be honest, the reason 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 Othed by Malorie Blackman. Personalize Common Sense for your family. Most of these are teenagers, with the prom being a common scenario.

Suffice to say, I’m a conventional kind of girl I guess: It went from lust to love, from pain to happiness, and even threw in some brotherly kindness and caring as well.

It was also bizarre in that the characters sort of sucked. From the first story, I was wishing that each story was an entire book. Painful, highly leevithan, and depressing in a good sort of way.

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 otherr stories run the mdt of that emotion that at some point has turned every one of us inside out and upside down.
