What a clever collection! Each memoir is only six words long. And each of those words has been carefully selected to convey powerful thoughts and feelings about love and heartbreak. Check out this memoir by Kyla Town on page 71: "We were roadkill on love's highway." For anyone that has loved and lost, those six words speak volumes. There are many more like this - you'll find yourself reading and exploring this volume from cover to cover.
