Personal stories of the rollercoaster of love
We've all felt them, the rollercoaster ups of being in love and the screaming downs of being hurt. Loves Me/Not is a collection of real stories gathered from women of all ages about times that they felt loved and times that they felt hurt, betrayed and left behind.
The accordion book has fold-up leaves to create pockets, and features the reoccurring motif of a daisy - who hasn't plucked those petals at least once? The structure is printed so that when the stories are pulled out, the daisies are still complete.
The stories are tender, poignant and funny. Here is just one of the stories included in Loves Me/Not:
My ex-boyfriend and I decided to call it quits. I wanted to make things work, he was my first love and I thought we were meant to be together. I still remember calling him that Sunday to talk about our relationship and hearing him say, "I'm sorry, I love you, but it's just too hard." I remember feeling my throat go dry, I was completely speechless. I actually felt like my heart had stopped beating. The days following our breakup I couldn't eat and I cried myself to sleep at night. This was my first experience with heartbreak.
