This is perhaps the most obscure book ever written on the face of the planet but somehow the author managed to pack a lifetime of sidesplitting humor into this ten page book. The story is told from the viewpoint of a young boy who finds himself in the age old predicament of love. He is unsure How to go about professing his love but in the end destiny has it's way. The book is simple and uncomplicated and in few words manages to communicate the fickleness of love!
