What do guys and girls really think? Twelve of the most dynamic and engaging YA authors writing today team up for this one-of-a-kind collection of "he said/she said" stories-he tells it from the guy's point of view, she tells it from the girl's. These are stories of love and heartbreak. There's the good-looking jock who falls for a dangerous girl, and the flipside, the toxic girl who never learned to be loved; the basketball star and the artistic (and shorter) boy she never knew she wanted; the gay boy looking for love online and the girl who could help make it happen. Each story in this unforgettable collection teaches us that relationships are complicated-because there are two sides to every story
I had the opportunity to read Girl meets Boy. I thought it was very interesting to read two view points of the same event by both main characters. I think I first loved this idea when reading Bella's view in Twilight and then reading Edward's view in Midnight Sun. 

It was great to see each view point written by a different author and not just by the same because not everyone thinks the same and even if you were the same sex and were at the same event/situation you would still see things differently.

I thought all the stories were written well and a few of the stories kept me wanting more then just a couple of pages each. I wanted to know what else happened to the characters and their relationship with each another. I also loved how each story was believable. Not everyone falls in love and lives happily ever after. 

If you love to read stories and always wanted to know what went on with that other main character or, "what were they thinking," when a certain something happened in the book, then this is a great book for you.
