Reviews

"This solid, legitimate anthology that reflects on a compelling and universal phenomenon will put readers back in touch with their younger selves." -- Library Journal "There's a lot to enjoy in these...pieces." -- Washington Post "Entertaining...Some stories are funny...others are inspiring...Reading these short, angst-packed essays about starting at movie screens and listening to transistor radios is like reminiscing with old friends...[A] reminder that first loves are always worth recalling." -- Booklist "[A] charming collection." -- Entertainment Weekly "The seemingly lightweight premise of an anthology built around celebrity crushes yields an outstanding selection of poignant and thought-provoking stories." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Charming...The authors do a remarkable job collecting different types of crushes while keeping the reminiscences short and sweet...A book that balances heartbreak and relief, blind love and terror. " -- Publishers Weekly
