Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Engaging…The authors use unique strategies for weaving together sexuality and relationships in their love triangle-themed prose.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“A volume that has something for readers of all genders and orientations.” Publishers Weekly
“A fresh, and maybe redeeming, look at a popular trope.” Booklist
“Some may think the time of the love triangle has gone by, but a contingent of young-adult authors has teamed up to reimagine the trope…Even readers who think they dislike love triangles will find something to enjoy here.” Kirkus Reviews
“These stories take the classic idea of a love triangle and turn it upside down. As any YA fan knows, love triangles are a staple of the genre. Each of these stories rewrites the love triangle stereotype in different and creative ways.” RT Book Reviews
