Meet Cute

Meet Cute

Even though there are some missing names in this "best selling YA authors" collection, I found many of the short stories extremely compelling. In particular, the stories by Nina Lacour, Katharine McGee, Emery Lord, and Jennifer L. Armentrout are spectacular love stories that are meaningful and resonant.
