Publisher's Summary

A collection of original contemporary love stories set during life in lockdown by some of today's most popular YA authors.

Erin Craig "delivers" on a story about a new girl in town and the cute pizza delivery boy, Auriane Desombre captures our hearts with teens communicating through window signs, and Bill Konigsberg takes us along on daily walks with every step bringing us closer to love. There's flirting and romance from Rachael Lippincott, a tale of a determined girl with a mask-making business from Erin Hahn, and a music-inspired love connection from Sajni Patel. Brittney Morris turns enemies to lovers with the help of a balcony herb garden, Jennifer Yen writes an unconventional romance that starts outside a hospital, and Natasha Preston's teens discover each other - and their love story - in a storybook oak tree. 

Romantic, realistic, sweet, and uplifting, Together, Apart is a collection of finding love in unexpected places during an unprecedented time...each with the one thing we all want: a guaranteed happy ending.

Love the LGBTQ, BIPOC, and mental health representation!

Overall, very cute characters and refreshing representation of LGBTQ, BIPOC, and mental health. I initially listened because I just finished Sajni Patel’s beautiful The Trouble With Hating You and needed more of her writing. I was disappointed to learn that this is the only other book from Patel on Audible but pleasantly surprised to see that that it was a collection of short stories. Love me some short stories. As someone who graduated in May 2020, some of the stories hit home especially hard (I was not prepared for that lol) but it made me feel valid in my experiences and was somehow just what I needed. It was struggle, heartache, and anxiety but it was balanced well with something so hopeful and pure: love.

Jaw Drop

This is the teen romance we've all needed this year. My only wish is that I'd read it sooner.
