Up All Night: 13 Stories between Sunset & Sunrise edited by Laura Silverman

(Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

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

my thoughts:

What a fun collection of short stories! I just LOVED dipping in and out of this anthology, especially at night. After all, these stories are set during the hours between 'Sunset and Sunrise'.  Is that not a great twist?  And the stories themselves, range from friendship, superheroes to Prom night, and so much more. Talk about a motley crew. 

Silverman edited a terrific group of shorts by so many stellar YA authors - Maurene Goo, Karen M. McManus, and Nina LaCour to name a few. How cool, right? I know that I was super excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. I just love short stories and YA happens to be my jam at the moment - so, I knew I was in for a treat. 

Up All Night is a delightful read that will have you laughing out loud and smiling with happiness, along with tearing up now and again. Such a great collection!

This reminds me of "Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson -- another 19th century serial killer who kept getting away with his incredible crimes. I found it so disturbing that I doubt I will read another book about the topic!
