Ein Valentinstag im Leben von A, dem Protagonisten von Letztendlich sind wir dem Universum egal.
Eine Rückkehr zu den Charakteren aus Two Boys Kissing.
Eine unerwiderte Liebe innerhalb einer Schulmannschaft.
Die "19 Love Songs" des New-York-Times-Bestsellerautors sind aus David Levithans Tradition entstanden, am Valentinstag Geschichten für seine Freunde zu schreiben. Geistreich, romantisch und ehrlich schreibt er über die unterschiedlichen Facetten der Liebe und findet so den Weg ins Bücherregal von Teenagern und Erwachsenen.
Ab 14 Jahren.
Levithan (Someday) celebrates different aspects of love through song, verse, graphic art, and stories in this collection of "tracks," many previously published in other anthologies, written with tenderness and humor. Most selections focus on gay male relationships, beginning with a story about a high school student's "unarticulated crush" on a quiz bowl teammate and progressing on to an examination of a couple's ups and downs through the changing seasons of one year. "Day 2934" offers a child's perspective of his mother's affection during one special Valentine's Day. "We" captures the pervading atmosphere of warmth and kinship ("You are yourself and something much larger than yourself, all at once") during a massive, peaceful protest march. Levithan's voice resounds strongly throughout, communicating a passion for kindness, individuality, and storytelling, and frequently encapsulating the mood and profundity of single moments. Threads connect the diverse protagonists (some of whom have appeared in previous works): many characters are struggling to find their identity, and most possess a strong desire to feel understood and wanted in this optimistic reminder of the transforming power of love. Ages 14 up. \n
