Up All Night: A Short Story Collection


Published by Laura Geringer Books / HarperTeen / HarperCollins, 2008
227 pages
ISBN: 9780061370762

Age 13 and older

Usually the hours between sunset and sunrise are spent at rest—unless there is something keeping you up all night. Then the late evening and early morning hours become period and place of strange vulnerability. In six very different stories, introduced by publisher Laura Geringer, young adult authors Peter Abrahams, Libby Bray, David Levithan, Patricia McCormick, Sarah Weeks, and Gene Luen Yang reveal nighttime excursions and personal explorations. Ranging from a drunken night with girlfriends after a rock concert to a determined teen’s mission to give herself driving lessons, and from tender conversations between siblings about life and death to candid dialogues between strangers and friends in the twilight hours, this masterful short story collection offers food for thought as a midnight snack.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
