The Lover's Dictionary

Cover: 'The Lover's Dictionary'

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!
