We all have that one friend whom we love so much but without crossing the limits of friendship. This feeling or emotion has a name and it’s called ‘Friend-Love’. It is a modern concept and to make viewers understand, artist and illustrator Yumi Sakugawa has created a book named ‘I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You’.
When asked about what ‘Friend-Love’ means, Ms Yumi said that It’s that super-awesome bond you share with someone who makes you happy every time you text each other, or meet up for an epic outing. It’s not love-love. You don’t want to swap saliva; you want to swap favorite books. But it’s just as intense and just as amazing.
In other words, this book is a must see, check out the adorable illustrations which showcase a lonely protagonist who is in ‘Friend-Love’ and how he tries to express his feelings.
