this was a gift for my daughter and it is one of her favorites
Morris wants so badly for their relationship to work, but many things are working against them. Morris is embarrassed by his parents and does not want Betty to meet them. His father suffers from bi-polar disorder, while his mother talks incessantly about dreams and poetry. Morris begins to wonder if crazy people are drawn to one another, and what that might mean for his relationship with Betty.
Can they outlast the craziness that has brought them together, or will their relationship fail like so many others before it?
I NEED YOU MORE THAN I LOVE YOU AND I LOVE YOU TO BITS is Gunnar Ardelius' debut novel. The story is told through short prose passages. Many of these passages are snippets of conversation shared between Betty and Morris. Sometimes it is difficult to decipher which character is speaking; however, that may have been Ardelius' intention, to make the dialogue as ambiguous as possible. The story is interesting, and will appeal to teenagers who have experienced first love.
As they say, your first love is the one you never forget.
