Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for We Are Quiet, We Are Loud:

"The anthology will provide much fodder for discussion, and it is sure to spark interest for creative writers and budding artists alike." - School Library Journal

"Each teen featured in this book has extraordinary talent. They've created flowing prose, heart-wrenching poetry, and shocking photos. The emotion that comes through in the writing is undeniable, whether it's despair, longing, hope, trust, or love." - TeensReadToo.com

Praise for Where We Are, What We See:

"This collection is a real boon for budding writers and artists, who will feel the encouragement and see the possibility of publication." - Booklist

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This is the fourth annual publication of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards for Teens. Thousands of entries in the categories of poetry, art, fiction and essay were read and reviewed, resulting in the publication in this anthology of forty pieces of literature and sixteen pictures or photographs of the art created. The quality of the various pieces is impressive; and is a solid testament to the idea that there are large numbers of young people capable of considering the world around them and writing about it or creating fantastic pieces of work from their interaction with it. Many of the stories and poems are heartbreaking, some are bleakly humorous, and all are memorable in their own ways. The pictures highlight both the abstract as well as the people and places we see and take for granted every day. This book is a great way to inspire other young writers and artists to push themselves in the manner these young people already have.
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—This year marks the 10th anniversary of the PUSH anthologies, so Levithan has compiled the best of the best from the 2008 to 2011 winners. The poetry and prose selections are a combination of voices from every walk of life that traverses the world from Beijing to Nigeria to America and back again in a compendium of love and loss, life and death. Topics covered range from working the graveyard shift at Walgreens to Eve in the Garden of Eden to the bravery of coming out and finding yourself. There is a broad range of mature emotion that adults can sometime forget exists in teens. It is uplifting and inspiring to hear the creative voices of the Up-and-coming generation. Teens will be able to relate to at least one of these stories as they hear their own voices in those of their peers. The experiences found within these words will resonate with readers long after the last page is turned. A collection of art and photography submissions found in the center of the book will appeal to visually oriented teens.—Kimberly Castle-Alberts, Hudson Library & Historical Society, OH

Meet the Author

David Levithan
David Levithan
David Levithan has said that with Boy Meets Boy, he "set out to write the book that I dreamed of getting as an editor -- a book about gay teens that doesn't conform to the old norms about gay teens in literature." According to the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers program -- and his rabid readers of all ages -- he's succeeded.

Good To Know

In our interview with Levithan, he shared some fun factoids with us:

"This book started out as a Valentine story I sent to friends; I've done that for the past 15 years, and this one happened to turn into a novel."

"Since January 1, 2001, I've taken a photograph every day, part of a New Year's resolution that shows no signs of stopping."

"My friend Kristin and I decorate each other's offices for our birthdays, and as a result I am surrounded by a year's worth of small celebrations, from mobiles to woodcuts of the Eiffel Tower to (this year's decoration) photos from my childhood.
