About Rookie on Love

"Containing poetry, essays, interviews, graphic short stories, and fiction, covering doggie love, Arthurian love, and grandmother love, the book offers a niche of love that all women can connect to. A thoughtful, light read celebrating a universal emotion." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The contributors, diverse in race and sexual orientation, range from current teens to adults who vividly remember their teen years . . . Each voice lends itself to universal truths about love, sometimes in no-holds-barred language, making this a good choice for YA and new adult collections." —Booklist
