Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“Superb short story collection”
Melissa DeWitt
Up All Night is a collection of six short stories that probe readers to find what drives their innermost thoughts, memories, or experiences that keep their minds ticking throughout night. For more mature readers, author Libba Bray's story, Not Just for Breakfast Anymore, portrays the main character struggling to find her family's identity when she is awakened to different perspectives on life after finding out that her father is gay. Author Peter Abrahams writes an emotional memoir-like story, Phase 2, of the unexpected loss of a military father and the toll it takes on the family he left behind. Gene Luen Yang's graphic short story, The Motherless One, advances the reader through a visual sequence of wanting to know the unknown. Other award-winning authors' stories included in the collection are David Levithan, Patricia McCormick, and Sarah Weeks. This collection of short stories is directed toward a more mature audience of middle and high school students. Reviewer: Melissa DeWitt\
Children's Literature - Denise Daley
This book consists of six extremely well-written stories. The stories are not necessarily scary or suspenseful, but they are very detailed and descriptive. Each of the contributing authors has received acclaim for previous work, and their talent is evident in each of these stories. In the first, Peter Abrahams writes a spine-tingling tale of a grieving mother who attempts to contact her beloved husband in the beyond. Libba Bray's story follows three teenaged girls as they travel to a Cheap Trick rock concert. David Levithan probes reader's inner thoughts as he considers the consequences if people were to truthfully respond to the oft-asked question "What's up?" "Orange Alert" is a tale by Patricia McCormick of a teenager who literally confronts problems head-on, and Sarah Weeks' "Superman is Dead" compares the death of a pet mouse to the figurative death of a family. The final story, by Gene Luen Yang, is a graphic story featuring a philosophical monkey. All in all, this book rightly deserves its title; readers will be up all night turning the pages of this enthralling book. Reviewer: Denise Daley\
School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up- Six top teen authors have contributed stories to this winning collection. Abrahams has written a modern ghost story, Libba Bray tells of a wild night partying with friends that changes a girl's relationship with her estranged father, and David Levithan gives readers a magical take on life in the city. Patricia McCormick takes a hard look at freedom and power, Sarah Weeks writes of responsibility with humor, and Yang tops off the book in his own graphic-novel style. Each story shines in its own way, giving teens a whole new appreciation for the short-story format. The selections as a whole become much more than they would be separately, exploring the darkest edges of night and the glory of emerging changed into the light of the new day. The authors' names alone will get teens to pick up this book, but it is the writing that will impress them the most.-Tasha Saecker, Menasha Public Library, WI

\
Kirkus Reviews
Can a person's life change in the course of a night? How about merely their view of the world? Six authors come together to tell different tales of acceptance, difficulty, understanding and epiphany. In "Phase 2," Abrahams tells a story of two kids hoodwinking their mother for the greater good. Libba Bray's "Not Just for Breakfast Anymore" navigates the tricky territory between a teen and her newly outed father. David Levithan takes a seemingly simple question-"What's up?"-and arrives at shockingly honest answers in "The Vulnerable Hours," while Patricia McCormick's "Orange Alert" features a teen who learns the connection between risk and power. Finally, Sarah Weeks's "Superman is Dead" brings a boy closer to his little brother thanks to a dying rodent, and Gene Luen Yang's "The Motherless One" presents a motherless monkey and gives him a very personal quest. The range and scope of these tales complement one another without a weak link in the chain. This collection will keep teens reading long into the deep, dark night. (Fiction. 13-18)\

Read an Excerpt

Up All Night SNY

Chapter One

"Counting the hours," my dad wrote in his last email. "Exactly forty-six more and I'm out of this godforsaken place. Phase Two begins! Love you all." All meaning Mom, my eleven-year-old brother, Neddy, and me, Lara.

"Hey Mom," I said. "An email from Dad."

"Is everything all right?" Mom said, hurrying over from whatever she was doing, the laundry maybe—laundry, I remembered at that moment, that I'd promised to take care of before school. For some reason, Mom just couldn't get used to these emails coming in real time from a war zone, got alarmed whenever one turned up in the in-box. She leaned over my shoulder for a closer look at the screen, a bottle of spot remover in her hand. I was aware of her eyes tracking the words, could feel her concentration, so intense.

"What's the time difference again?" Mom said.

"Thirteen hours?" I said. "Or maybe with turning back the clocks it's—"

"Why can't you guys get this?" said Neddy, doing his homework at the kitchen table. He glanced at his watch. "It's eight thirty-five a.m. over there, a.m. tomorrow."

"That's good," said Mom.

"What is?" I said.

"That it's already tomorrow," Mom said.

"For God's sake," said Neddy. "Forty-six hours is forty-six hours." Probably the very words Dad would have said, but they wouldn't have sounded so annoying coming from him. Dad had a real gentle voice, deep but soft. Neddy's voice had a grating undertone even when he was in a good mood. But he and Dad both had that precise way about them, a precision you could see in Dad's email, how the grammar wasalways right and all the letters that should have been capitalized were. That precision was what made him such a great pilot. Nobody had told me that—I just knew. Once, when I was really little and we still lived on the base, Dad took me up in an old World War Two P-39, let me sit on his lap while he flew. Somehow his hands on the controls looked intelligent, as though each contained a tiny brain, thinking about every movement. I felt so safe, like the sky was my natural element. He even did a few barrel rolls, just to hear me laugh. Dad liked my laugh, for some reason. "Where'd Lara get a laugh like that?" he'd say.

Mom went to the calendar on the fridge door. "So forty-six hours from now means Thursday at six thirty-five P.M.?"

"Duh," said Neddy.

Mom took a red marker and made a big ! in Thursday's square. That didn't mean Dad was coming home on Thursday; they always flew to the Ramstein base in Germany first. But he'd be back by Sunday or Monday and then there'd be big changes, what Dad called Phase Two of our lives. Phase Two started with Dad resigning from the service and taking a piloting job with Executive Air, a charter company. Mom and Dad were real happy about it. He'd be home three or four nights a week and most weekends, and the pay was good. They'd already put down a deposit on a house in almost the nicest part of town. A house with a pool! Plus Neddy and I were going to have our own bedrooms for the first time, instead of sharing. Even the address sounded great: 88 Hickory Lane. I'd already written it on all my schoolbooks, scratching out "3712 Baseline Road, Apt. 19."

Mom went to the beauty parlor and had highlights put in her hair. Once or twice I heard her singing to herself. Mom had a beautiful singing voice, had even made a demo for some record producer when she was a teenager. She cleaned the apartment from top to bottom and rearranged the furniture. Thursday night she made a special dinner—pork roast with orange sauce and pecan pie for dessert. Mom kept glancing at the clock. At six thirty-five she went to the fridge and took out a bottle of wine. Mom didn't drink wine, didn't drink at all. "Who wants a little sip?" she said.

"Bring it on," said Neddy.

Mom gave him a look. "Just this once, buster," she said.

I took three glasses from the cupboard and set them on the table. Mom was unscrewing the cap off the wine when the buzzer went. She pressed the intercom button and said, "Yes?"

Then came some static, followed by a man's voice. "Mrs. Byron?"

"Yes?"

"First Lieutenant Kevin Skype and Chaplain Ferrarra to see you, ma'am. May we come up?"

Mom went white, the color of a corpse in the movies. The bottle of wine slipped from her hand and smashed on the floor, but while it was still in midair I noticed a soaring eagle on the label, rising in a pure blue sky, the image so clear. I remembered that eagle way better than anything that happened in the next few days.

There's a crazy thing I've thought about a lot of times and still don't understand. After someone dies—someone close to you, I mean, like a father—why should it be so important to get the body back and bury it? They're dead, right? That's the big thing. So what difference should it make? All I can tell you is that it does. It makes a big difference.

I know, because we never got to bury my dad. Chaplain Ferrarra said there was nothing to recover after the crash, nothing human to bury. We had the funeral—packed church, trumpeter playing Taps, buddies of Dad's who called him a hero. They were all so gentle, big guys kind of trying to make themselves smaller, if you know what I mean, so they wouldn't be towering over the three of us. Something strange happened to me in the church: I suddenly felt so alive, more alive than I'd ever been, just glowing with it, hyperconscious of my beating heart, the blood flowing through my veins, the oxygen filling my lungs. That shamed me, but there was nothing I could do about it. Anyway, the full-of-life feeling didn't last long. Soon the three of us were back in Apartment 19 at 3712 Baseline Road and I was all hollowed out. Going through the motions: an everyday saying that I now understood through and through.

    Not my kind of thing

    In this anthology, six phenomenal authors answer the question ¿What would keep you up all night?¿ The authors are Peter Abrahams, Libba Bray, David Levithan, Patricia McCormick, Sarah Weeks, and Gene Luen Yang. At first, I thought this book would contain personal stories from these authors, but I soon realized they were fictional short stories. My favorite of the six had to be Libba Bray¿s short story about a group of four friends who go to a rock concert. Libba Bray, the author of the Great and Terrible Beauty series, is an amazing author. Out of the six stories, hers was the longest and most enjoyable one for me to read. I also enjoyed the stories by David Levithan and Patricia McCormick. David¿s story was a little confusing and pointless at first, but I liked the ending. Patricia¿s story was just plain creepy until the ending, which was hilarious. Sarah Week¿s story was the saddest. And the other two were okay, but nothing something I would remember for a long time. I have to say I had my doubts about reading this book because I¿m not usually a fan of anthologies. I would say that this book is only okay it¿s not something I would rush out to buy.

    Six stories relate to the darkness and the wonder of staying up all night. <BR/><BR/>Libba Bray writes about four best friends going to a concert and looking for the band's after party. When they need a place to crash, they spend the night at one girl's father's new apartment, almost exposing a huge family secret. <BR/><BR/>The family in Peter Abraham's story attempt to move on after the death of a loved one, but can they reach him from beyond the grave before they let go? <BR/><BR/>David Levithan explores one girl's search to let go of social politeness and to find herself in the darkness of the night. <BR/><BR/>These six stories (the remaining written by Patricia McCormick, Sarah Weeks, and Gene Luen Yang) will make readers think of the nighttime and all of the secrets and power it possesses. <BR/><BR/>Read these tales after dark.
