Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5344 comments Whether or not you believe in fate, or luck, or love at first sight, every romance has to start somewhere. MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of "how they first met" from some of today’s most popular YA authors.

Readers will experience Nina LaCour's beautifully written piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard's glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, Nicola Yoon's imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups, Katie Cotugno's story of two teens hiding out from the police at a house party, and Huntley Fitzpatrick's charming love story that begins over iced teas at a diner. There’s futuristic flirting from Kass Morgan and Katharine McGee, a riveting transgender heroine from Meredith Russo, a subway missed connection moment from Jocelyn Davies, and a girl determined to get out of her small town from Ibi Zoboi. Jennifer Armentrout writes a sweet story about finding love from a missing library book, Emery Lord has a heartwarming and funny tale of two girls stuck in an airport, Dhonielle Clayton takes a thoughtful, speculate approach to pre-destined love, and Julie Murphy dreams up a fun twist on reality dating show contestants.

This incredibly talented group of authors brings us a collection of stories that are at turns romantic and witty, epic and everyday, heartbreaking and real.

I thought so too but it's more like a beginning of a slow burn romance. But I like it. Stronger set of characters . Too bad this is a short story.

Totally agree. Also, why the second person narrative?

@Quirks I thought the same thing too when it started. Very jarring

Thank you for enlightening me on this one. (view spoiler)

I feel the same about this. It was so-so for me.

That was the least cute meet cute ever. And I didn't like the writing. The story felt like an account of a sequence of events. Lots of telling. No emotion.

This one was really strange for me. I couldn't get into it for some reason - maybe because I was too busy trying to figure out how to picture the campus set up lol

Finished: I wasn't near a computer so I couldn't update with each story but I finished this today. Overall I thought the book was just ok. I think most of the stories were a little bit of a let down more than making me go "awwww". I really liked Jennifer Armentrout's, which didn't shock me. Also, I think they should have ended on someone else's aside from Nicola Yoon's. Hers was just a little too weird for me.
