Review

“[Holeman] creates characters so familiar that it’s almost impossible not to place yourself right in the story. This is a writer who can weave such a spell that a dilemma can become your dilemma and your gut tightens with the stress.”
The Globe and Mail

“I think it may be the best book of the year’s books for young adults.”
Ottawa Citizen

“…these thought-provoking and perceptive narratives manage effectively to capture difficult and often awkward coming-of-age moments with clarity and compassion… Holeman successfully captures the quintessence of adolescence; her characters are skillfully drawn and believable… The narratives and rich with detail and imagery… The collections should be a part of every junior and senior high school library – a good choice for book talks…Highly Recommended.”
CM Magazine

From the Inside Flap

Selected by the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association as one of the PSLA YA Top Forty Fiction Titles 2003

Toxic Love is a distinctive collection of short stories by Linda Holeman, each exploring love in all its touching, tragic, and often funny permutations.

In the title story “Toxic Love”, Carla is an intellectual with a stutter, a dweeb. She’s also an incurable romantic. Feeling isolated in her country town, she tries to dream up romances for her English teacher, Miss Kleinfeld, and a handsome colleague. Carla is shocked from her giggly wishful daydreams when she realizes that Miss Kleinfeld’s love was never available. In the hilarious “Something Fishy” the narrator is looking for some excitement in her ho-hum suburban life, and almost without meaning to, she tells a whopper of a lie. The excitement that follows is more than she bargained for.

First published in 1995 as Saying Good-bye, this brilliant collection of work by Linda Holeman navigates through the landscape of adolescence with sympathy and heart.
