The Lover's Dictionary- David Levithan
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.
