Up All Night
13 Stories between Sunset and Sunrise
Edited by Laura Silverman
When everyone else goes to bed, the ones who stay up feel like they’re the only people in the world. As the hours tick by deeper into the night, the familiar drops away and the unfamiliar beckons. Adults are asleep, and a hush falls over the hum of daily life. Anything is possible.
It’s a time for romance and adventure. For prom night and ghost hunts. It’s a time for breaking up, for falling in love—for finding yourself.
Stay up all night with these thirteen short stories from bestselling and award-winning YA authors like Karen McManus, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nina LaCour, and Brandy Colbert, as they take readers deep into these rarely seen, magical hours.
Full contributor list: Brandy Colbert, Kathleen Glasgow, Maurene Goo, Tiffany D. Jackson, Amanda Joy, Nina LaCour, Karen M. McManus, Anna Meriano, Marieke Nijkamp, Laura Silverman, Kayla Whaley, Julian Winters, Francesca Zappia
I have always wondered what happens when everyone is asleep. Up All Night has 13 stories by new-to-me authors and the subjects are varied. Romance to ghost stories and more. Whatever your taste in stories, there’s bound to be something for you here.
A really great idea for an anthology. I love anthologies as they are excellent for getting an idea of each author’s writing style.
Thanks to Laura Silverman and Algonquin Books for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.
