How does love begin?
A glance, a gesture, an unexpected offer of help from a stranger…or from a good friend. A smile across a counter at a coffee shop or video store. A secret revealed in a song from another place and time. Or in a love ballad crooned at a high school dance.
In this anthology of never-before-published sweet LGBTQ+ stories, six authors explore the beginnings of love between young and new adult couples. All proceeds will support The Trevor Project’s work with crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ+ youth.
How We Began is an anthology of short stories aimed at a Young Adult/New Adult audience, all of which feature LGBTQ+ protagonists. There are several of the authors who were familiar to me before How We Began and others whose books I am now eager to add to my TBR pile.
As with any anthology I enjoyed some stories more than others, but really the most important thing about How We Began is that all the proceeds are being donated to The Trevor Project, which helps young people from the LGBTQ+ community, by offering counselling and education in an aim to prevent suicide amongst this vulnerable group.
Therefore, I could give you a detailed run-down of the various stories included in How We Began, but really I just think it is important to know that whether you think you will love Delphine Dryden’s Unexpected Dragons more than Annabeth Albert’s First in Line, that by buying this anthology you will be helping someone who is struggling!
