A compilation of short stories about romance.

I had high hopes from the author of "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist", but it didn't quite measure up. My favorite story was the first one, I think, "Starbucks Boy", and then they were marginal from there. Granted, some of these stories were written by Levithan when he was in high school, and he left them as-is, but they're a little overwrought for my taste.

There are gay, lesbian, and heterosexual stories. All are about romantic relationships, but in "Princes", for instance, the best part of the story is the relationship between the brothers.

It contains a lot of graphic sexuality, and maybe language (I can't remember just now), so it's best for older teens.
