Loved this collection! For once, I‘d be hard pressed to pick a weak story. #Audiolisten from the library, but I‘m thinking of getting a print copy for a reread at a later date.

Tagged was one of my #Top21of2021 and is a kindle deal today. Written by multiple POC authors, It‘s interconnected short stories that take place during a NYC blackout.
And of course, Woodson‘s Red at the Bone is amazing like all her work. $1.99 today.

JamieArc This is one I plan to read early in the year. Looking forward to it! 3w

a collection of short stories about young, Black love in New York, taking place during a blackout. these tales of Black love celebrate family as much as they showcase the many ways teenage love can claim a heart.

I'm old and grumpy so high school kids obsessing over their love lives causes some eye rolling. Still, the throughlines of the blackout and the block party kept me going. There were a few standouts: Mask Off (which also had superb narration); All The Great Love Stories; and Seymour And Grace.

This anthology of YA romance short stories by Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Ashley Woodfolk, Dhonielle Clayton, Angie Thomas and Nicola Yoon features an all Black cast that inter-connect to form a wider novel with excellent pace, crackling dialogue, LGB representation and aspiration that does not ignore reality. There were a couple of points where I didn‘t get at first how characters connected but this is an enjoyable read if you like romance.

Short stories aren't always my jam, same with novellas. I want more and that just not the way with either genre. At least in this case there was a central theme and each story didn't have to world build the setting as they shared it - Blackout mid summer in NYC.

LiteraryinLawrence I just got this as a gift and am eager to try it! 4mo
megnews I don‘t care for short stories. But I love NYC and most of these authors. I have this on my tbr for next month. We‘ll see how the short story format works for me. 4mo

Well, I lied about not finishing any books this weekend. Didn‘t realize I was this close to finishing. I loved how all these stories were interconnected. Well done!

A sudden blackout hits all of New York City on a summer evening. These six interconnecting stories tell of six different romances in different stages happening across the city. As with any collection, I preferred some stories to others, but overall I\'d say it was worth the read.

Second book down in the #AwesomeAugust Readathon! Finished last night! Two books read in one weekend, wow. This is a short story collection from a group of YA authors revolving around a NYC blackout. Each story revolves around a YA romance with black characters. And they all connect in a way, which was really neat. I really enjoyed this one! A quick and fun read.

Although it is a young adult book I enjoyed every minute of it. The stories were about different teen couples during a blackout in NYC. I don‘t know which story I enjoyed most, but they all were good.

Loved this as an audiobook. The narrators were wonderful! I definitely have a few new favorites. Basic premise is there‘s a blackout in NYC. A bunch of teens are making their way to a party and catching feelings along the way. I liked how the stories were connected, but easy to listen to independently of each other. Wish there had been one about Twig- a side character who was mentioned in most stories. Maybe in a future companion book :)

It‘s lovely to see such inspired, fun art coming out of the pandemic. This novel in stories was written by six authors collaborating virtually to tell romantic stories set against the backdrop of a blackout in NYC.
