Whether or not you believe in fate, or luck, or love at first sight, every romance has to start somewhere. MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of "how they first met" from some of today’s most popular YA authors.

Readers will experience Nina LaCour's beautifully written piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard's glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, Nicola Yoon's imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups, Katie Cotugno's story of two teens hiding out from the police at a house party, and Huntley Fitzpatrick's charming love story that begins over iced teas at a diner. There’s futuristic flirting from Kass Morgan and Katharine McGee, a riveting transgender heroine from Meredith Russo, a subway missed connection moment from Jocelyn Davies, and a girl determined to get out of her small town from Ibi Zoboi. Jennifer Armentrout writes a sweet story about finding love from a missing library book, Emery Lord has a heartwarming and funny tale of two girls stuck in an airport, Dhonielle Clayton takes a thoughtful, speculate approach to pre-destined love, and Julie Murphy dreams up a fun twist on reality dating show contestants.

This incredibly talented group of authors brings us a collection of stories that are at turns romantic and witty, epic and everyday, heartbreaking and real.

-what i liked-

  • It’s all about people meeting for the first time! They were all romances, and it was great to think about how some people meet for the first time and their lives are changed from that moment forward. I definitely feel that way about some of my closest friends, which made a lot of these pretty relatable.
  • It’s written by so many awesome YA writers. I love anthologies for this very reason. You get to see a different side of so many authors that you don’t see through their books, especially the science fiction writers like Kass Morgan who wrote The 100
  • This is an easy read! Since it’s an anthology, it was easy to pick up and put down. 

-what i disliked-

  •  nothing!

If you’re looking for an easy summer read, I highly suggest picking this one up!

  1. Anthologies are hit or miss for me, so I usually skip them, but I do love the concept of this one, and am impressed by the list of authors involved. Glad you enjoyed it.
