“Many of these stories began as Valentine’s gifts. Together, they have the feel of a bittersweet reality check – a very nice counterbalance to the usual candy hearts and chocolates.” – Los Angeles Times

What is love? With this original story collection, David Levithan proves that love is a many splendored thing, a varied, complicated, addictive, wonderful thing.
