Comments Summer Love

  • Heather Bennett

    This book is not only a great read, it is also important. My first thought when I finished reading as an e-book was "I need the paperback version", because I want this on my bookshelf. I want it there so my son and daughter can see it, so they can read it, and give it to their friends, who can give it to their friends and so on. I want "Summer Love" to become well worn and dog-eared, and read by LGBTQ and straight kids alike, because this is a beautiful collection of stories that gives a platfor [...]


  • Steph

    A sweet and warm collection of short stories that really capture the exhilaration, anticipation, and discovery that teenage summers are all about. These stories are giddy with possibilities, sometimes joyful and exhilarating, sometimes bittersweet. It's refreshing to see a collection of YA LGBTQ fiction that really feels put together for LGBTQ teens first and foremost.


  • Janine

    Summer Love is a perfect reminder of how it feels to be young, confused, and falling in love. Each story is so incredibly different, and yet every one addresses that same feeling - the butterflies, the disbelief, the happiness. The stand out stories were 'The Willow Weeps for Us' by Suzey Ingold, which captured beautifully how love can still be found even when the world seems dark, and that even the smallest of moments can seem like the most important. Ella J Ash's 'Surface Tension' tells the st [...]

    This collection of short stories was exactly the kind of book I needed in my life. To be honest, I'm getting kind of sick of books where the protagonist identifies as LGBTQ and all of their struggles are related to their LGBTQ identity. I mean, I get it, all books need conflicts and we're not exactly at the point where being LGBTQ is completely accepted. But still, I was really just craving some cute, sweet LGBTQ fluffy romance and Summer Love filled that hole perfectly.I also liked that for a l [...]


  • Becky

    This book was an interesting and challenging read for me because it is so rare for me to read a book where I am clearly not the intended audience. Hello, privilege! This book was clearly written for queer teens, which I am not and have never been. I also struggle with short story collections because I would rather just read one longer story--short story collections often read as repetitive to me.The stories in this book developed a rhythm--teen struggles with sexuality. Teen comes out. Teen inst [...]

    I had the opportunity to advance read one story from this collection: The Most Handsome by SJ Martin. A wonderful story, where a queer trans young man experiences first love. It was charming and sweet, and the main character was delightful and relatable. Easy, sweet, and romantic, and I really look forward to more from this author!

    FiveStarsThis is a wonderful collection of stories about first summertime romances. The stories are about young adult characters, but they will resonate with anyone who has ever enjoyed or dreamed of a summer romance. Bonfires, beaches and summer jobs form the backdrop to stories about first glances, first kisses and first touches.Unlike many anthologies, the content here is cohesive and the writing is consistently excellent. I was surprised by the stories I was most drawn to. I loved Ella J. As [...]


  • Kate Fierro

    I reached for Summer Love in a cold, rainy autumn week when I didn't have much free time to immerse myself in any long form. Summery short stories sounded perfect. And they did provide a perfect escape - in fact, many delicious little escapes filled with the sun and the feel of slow summer days, and the memory of first loves. There are very different stories in this anthology, and I have a few favorites - Beautiful Monsters, What the Heart Wants and On the Shore, in particular - but each and eve [...]


  • Lindsey Loree

    Edited by Annie Harper, this short story anthology features nine authors, each of whose contributions touches on romance, summertime, and queerness in all its facets. The collection is a lovely roller coaster whose only direction is up. Trust me when I say this is a book you should be reading this month. Take it to the beach (put on sunscreen first!) and lay on a towel in the sand. The magic of the sun and the talented words of the authors will be a memory you’ll want to repeat again next year [...]


  • Charlie

    This collection of bright and bold short stories offers an optimistic glimpse of young LGBTQ life, from coming out, first romances, summer flings, bad break ups, and everything in between. It's a pure escape from the doom and gloom that so often lines the shelves. From authors with a huge variety of personal perspectives, this varied anthology is a welcome addition to the market and well worth picking up. It's joyful outlook avoids sugar coating yet offers escapism at its best and puts the under [...]


  • Hanah

    These stories are light, breezy beach reads featuring LGBT teens falling in love. Everyone gets a happy ending, so it feels a lot like it should be called Chicken Soup for the LGBT Teen Soul.

    Short stories are not my favourite thing, nor are straight-up love stories (um, yeah. "Straight-up" seems like the wrong word to use for this book), so I mostly read it because one of the stories was written by a friend - and I ended up enjoying it a lot more than I expected. Most stories left me with a feeling of, "what - nooo! It can't be over yet, I want to read more!"


  • Cathy Brockman

    Since I don't give halfs I rounded up to a 4Over all this is a very interesting collection of short stories. There is YA, NA,MM, FF, And transgender. There is a little bit of something for everyone. Each story is poignant and full of emotions. This is a great book to get a sample of several new or new to you authors.


  • Beth

    Great collection of sweet summer love stories. Standouts are What the Heart Wants and Surface Tension.


  • Ron-michael

    A cute collection of short stories, many by authors being published for the first time. Spans the 20th and 21st century, from WWII to current day. Great beach read.


  • Heatherblakely

    I love summer stories. I love summer in general, but I really love cute summer stories, especially queer ones. There's so much potential and everything feels different, and stories focusing on the season tend to capture all that potential. Of the 9 stories, four were f/f and five were m/m, with at least one bi boy and a f/f interracial relationship. There was one story about a trans boy, and I'd like to know if it was an own voices story, because it made me uncomfortable (the use of the dead nam [...]


  • Saxitlurg

    I'll be honest couple of the stories REALLY annoyed me, but that's a risk you take with short story collections. However, the stories that were good were REALLY good, and make the book totally worth reading.


  • Jenni Frencham

    Because of my work on the 2016 Stonewall Book Awards, I cannot publish my opinions on any children's or YA book with LGBTQ+ characters or themes. I may update these reviews after the announcement of the 2016 Stonewall Book Awards.


  • Tegan

    i was a little disappointed by this - it sounded right up my alley but some of the writing was just a little bit weak.
