“The perfect summer read—it’s fast, fun, and will leave readers smiling.” —School Library Journal
Summer Love is the first collection of short stories published by Duet, the young adult imprint from Interlude Press. These short stories are about the emergence of young love—of bonfires and beaches, of the magical in-between time when young lives step from one world to another, and about finding the courage to be who you really are, to follow your heart and live an authentic life. The contributing authors have written stories about both romantic and platonic love featuring characters who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, pansexual and queer/questioning. The authors also represent a spectrum of experience, identity and backgrounds.
Included in the collection are: "Beautiful Monsters" (Rachel Davidson Leigh), “The Willow Weeps for Us” (Suzey Ingold), “The Fire-Eater’s Daughter” (Amy Stilgenbauer), “Surface Tension” (Ella J. Ash), “My Best Friend” (H.J. Coulter), “What the Heart Wants” (Naomi Tajedler), “The Most Handsome” (S.J. Martin), “Something Like Freedom” (Caroline Hanlin), and “On the Shore” (Rachel Blackburn).
