Congrats again to Stephanie Perkins, and the authors of the stories in her new anthology, SUMMER DAYS AND SUMMER NIGHTS. They just received their third pre-publication starred review! School Library Journal joins Publishers Weekly and Kirkus in loving this collection, which they called “a sizzling must-have that will be too hot to keep on shelves.” And further:
The stories are by turns bittersweet, unexpected, and unapologetically hopeful, and themes of endurance, bravery, and determination emerge as the teens navigate issues such as broken families, ending relationships, life after high school, and identity.
I can’t wait for the earnest conversations about which story is your favorite. With an amazing list of authors — Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Brandy Colbert, Tim Federle, Lev Grossman, Nina LaCour, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovron, and Jennifer E. Smith — it’s a great opportunity to both dive into a new world by a favorite author, and maybe discover someone new!
