"...An enjoyable and diverse collection that never feels repetitive, despite the stories’ shared thematic underpinnings... All 14 leave just enough magic and mystery to inspire readers to trust in a little bit of fate." —Publishers Weekly
“The people and situations vary, but it all comes down to that effervescent moment of “hello” — so essentially, it’s like those Starburst bags that only contain the red and pink ones, but in book form.” —EW.com
"The collection is a welcome departure from strictly heterosexual romance, including cisgirl-meets-girl and transgirl-meets-girl connections in addition to girl-meets-boy scenarios... A collection that adds much-needed diversity to the existing teen-romance genre." —Kirkus
"Ultimately a well-rounded, charming collection of love stories that any reader will be happy to meet." — Booklist
