Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Twelve of the best-loved and best-known young adult authors-Rainbow Rowell, David Levithan, and Matt de la Peña among them-have contributed stories to this appealing collection. Most have a Christmas setting, but Hanukkah, the winter solstice, and New Year's Eve are also represented. Most are realistic, but Holly Black, Kelly Link, Jenny Han, and Laini Taylor have contributed tales steeped in fantasy or the supernatural. What all 12 selections have in common is teen romance at its most fragile and meaningful. Never mind the winter holidays; booktalk this title all year round.—Virginia Walter, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies

Review

“Rich language and careful, efficient character development make the collection an absorbing and sophisticated read, each story surprisingly fresh despite the constraints of a shared theme. It's that rarest of short story collections: There's not a single lump of coal.” ―Kirkus (starred review)

“There's no shortage of cozy setups for holiday romance in this captivating collection of short stories…a rare seasonal treat.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Holiday canoodling stories by twelve of the top YA authors? It's a Christmas miracle! This is the substantive stuff of dream stockings: a rollicking, blush-inducing, memorable holiday collection of breezy, bite-sized stories perfect a snug evening next to the fire.” ―Booklist (starred review)

“Never mind the winter holidays; booktalk this title all year round.” ―School Library Journal (starred review)

“Stunning and diverse, this holiday anthology is pure magic. This is what all anthologies should aspire to be.” ―RT Book Review, 4.5 stars, "Top Pick"

“This collection of holiday stories reminds readers that while the season can be painful, it's also a time of hope. It's a marvelous collection, certain to earn a treasured spot on many Y.A. shelves.” ―The New York Times Book Review

My True Love Gave to Me is a plummy treat… Its best stories are worth savoring long past the seasonal expiration date and even beyond the teen years.” ―The Washington Post

“Satisfying and just sweet enough, like a good Christmas cookie, this will obviously appeal to those readers who get out the holiday decorations the day after Halloween, and it may even convert a Scrooge or two.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
