Whether or not you believe in fate or luck, or love at first sight, every romance has to start somewhere. MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of “how they first met” from some of today’s most popular YA authors.
This was a cute collection of stories. Some better than others (as always) and some I could have left out for sure.

Print Shop by Nina LaCour
Hourglass by Ibi Zoboi

I thought this one was quite cute – our main characters meet via an online dating algorithm but that is just the beginning of their adventure. Upon arriving at the restaurant our main character realizes she has left her phone in the cab – so they try to track it down.
