☙ UP ALL NIGHT is on the TXLA’s 2022 TAYSHAS list.
This collection of stories, all set in the nighttime, seamlessly brings together some of the biggest names in YA fiction. (…) [T]ough topics such as racism, mental illness, and sexuality are included and discussed frankly without seeming preachy. It should be noted that one story (Marieke Nijkamp’s “Con Nights, Parallel Hearts”) centers abuse and may be triggering for some. (…) High-interest stories by popular authors make this a first purchase for high school libraries and teen collections.
– School Library Journal
Thirteen contemporary short stories by some of today’s leading young adult novelists explore how one late night can change the course of everything. Editor Silverman compiles an impressive collection that explores coming-of-age themes, including the thrill of teenage crushes, the whirlwind of preparing for prom, and the adjustments needed to create a blended family, while also featuring a mix of characters diverse in race, sexuality, and gender identity. (…) A thoughtful volume that will appeal to a broad range of readers.
Multiple genres find a home in this intriguing anthology of 13 stories that each take place over one long night, written by YA authors including Brandy Colbert, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nina LaCour, and Marieke Nijkamp. (…) Representing multiple forms of love—between crushes, friends, pets, and siblings—this group of stories offers an inclusive range of narratives and twisty endings alongside sound lessons about love, joy, and life’s natural changes.
