Synopsis: When everyone else goes to bed, the ones who stay up feel like they’re the only people in the world. As the hours tick by deeper into the night, the familiar drops away and the unfamiliar beckons. Adults are asleep, and a hush falls over the hum of daily life. Anything is possible.
It’s a time for romance and adventure. For prom night and ghost hunts. It’s a time for breaking up, for falling in love—for finding yourself.
Stay up all night with these thirteen short stories from bestselling and award-winning YA authors like Karen McManus, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nina LaCour, and Brandy Colbert, as they take readers deep into these rarely seen, magical hours.
Full contributor list: Brandy Colbert, Kathleen Glasgow, Maurene Goo, Tiffany D. Jackson, Amanda Joy, Nina LaCour, Karen M. McManus, Anna Meriano, Marieke Nijkamp, Laura Silverman, Kayla Whaley, Julian Winters, Francesca Zappia (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This was a very cute short story collection and I really enjoyed reading it. I thought all the stories did a great job of sticking to the theme. It had a great selection of well known authors, plus some that I was newly introduced to. It's just a very well put together collection.
If you're a fan of short story collections, I'd definitely recommend giving this one a read. It's as nice on the inside as it is pretty on the outside.
