My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories

Cover: 'My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories'

Staff Review: "My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories" by Stephanie Perkins

★★★★★

This compilation of twelve holiday stories written by well-known young adult authors will not disappoint this holiday season! Authors such Rainbow Rowell, Holly Black and David Levithan will make you love the winter season even more. Each of the stories is very different and carries its authors' distinct voice, therefore making each story a true delight. Stories ranged from Hanukkah to New Year's Eve, and from New York City to Christmas, California--a place not even big enough to be considered a town. Each of the couples in the stories are illustrated in the cover art, making it fun to find them after reading their story. Some of the stories were a little far-fetched, but overall many of the stories were a great read. Recommended for anyone looking for a holiday read or any fan of young adult fiction.

Audience: teens | Genre: fiction, short stories, holiday
