Love Hurts

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Doubleday

Children's Laureate Malorie Blackman brings together a whole host of leading writers for teenagers in this collection of YA love stories. Featuring both short stories and extracts from longer novels by authors including Gayle Forman, Markus Zusak, Patrick Ness and Andrew Smith, it explores relationships at every stage - from first kisses, to final heartbreak.

Teen readers will enjoy dipping in and out of this collection, which includes punchy new stories from the likes of Susie Day, James Dawson, David Levithan and Malorie Blackman herself. Whilst keen readers may already be familiar with some of the extracts from longer novels, these will also provide teens with the chance to discover new books and new authors. Most notably however, the anthology depicts a very wide range of romantic relationships, and a diverse set of characters, showing love in all its forms.
