Summary
This story is told as A to Z dictionary entries, weaving together the story of a relationship between two people in New York City. Defining one word per page, the narrator, who is one of the partners in the relationship, meanders back and forth, from the sweet beginnings through everyday contentment and irritation to a joyful commitment and a heartbreaking betrayal.
Critique
Poetically written and creatively constructed, author David Levithan describes snippets of memories, evocations of feelings and observations about the frustrations of love. Both funny and poignant, this is a book that we can all relate to and relish.
