Staff Review: "The Lover's Dictionary" by David Levithan


Have you ever thought of describing and defining your relationships through one word descriptions? This very creative author has done just that. He uses words, like a dictionary, in order to tell the story of a relationship between two people. It really is remarkable that this format works, and I was a little skeptical starting this book that I would not like it. Halfway through the book, I began to really appreciate this style of writing and started to gain a deeper perspective of the relationship portrayed in the book. You will be amazed at how much you can learn about something in succinct descriptions. A very good read!
