The Lover's Dictionary- David Levithan

This is going to be a short review because this was a short book.
However, this was also a really cool book.
There are a lot of love stories out there.  But I have never seen one told in this way.

Seriously, it's brilliant.  Each page has a word.  And under the word, there is a description of something that happened in the narrator's relationship that could be described by that word.

So the book goes from A-Z, telling the story of this relationship in a sort of disjointed way.  It's not linear, and a lot of it is very general, but there are also some things which are peculiar to that relationship alone.

I think anyone who has been in a relationship can find some truth in this book.  There are always uncertainties, issues, problems, and still some really amazing moments.

I liked it quite a bit.  I think you should read it, too.
