YA Holiday Books– New and Old Favorites at Patten

For those of you who warm to a good holiday tale, we highly recommend a new volume of short stories which we’ve just added to the teen collection. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories has been edited by popular YA romance author, Stephanie Perkins, and it features an impressive roster of your favorite best-selling YA authors:  Rainbow Rowell, Laini Taylor, David Levithan, Jenny Han, Ally Carter, Kiersten White, Matt de la Pena, Gayle Forman, Holly Black, Kelly Link, and Myra McEntire. In her introduction, Perkins explains that the inspiration for the book came out of her fondness for holiday Hallmark TV movies, and the book reflects that romantic spirit, but also so much more. Each story is thoughtful, well-crafted, and surprisingly fresh. Critics are praising the book with starred reviews, and we think readers will agree!
