I Think I Am In Friend Love With You (Adams Media)

Join us tonight for the launch party of Yumi Sakugawa's fabulous first book, I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You. An absolute Skylight Books favorite, her There Is No Right Way To Meditate has been a bestseller in our store for months.

Based on the web comic of the same name, I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You is a celebration of the heart-soaring emotion of deep friendship, which was shared on Tumblr more than 175,000 times and was later featured on Buzzfeed and other social media networks. Get a taste here and fall in friend-love with one of the most earnest and heartwarming talents from a zine-making, comics-creating universe all her own. 

Praise for I Think I Am In Friend Love With You:

"Look around. You won't find anything sweeter than this lonely little book anywhere in your immediate vicinity. Unless for some reason there's, like, a bunny knitting a scarf for a puppy. That might be sweeter. Aside from that, this book is definitely your best bet." --Avery Monsen, coauthor of "K is for Knifeball" and "All My Friends Are Dead"

"This is one of my favorite comics ever, a sweet ode to platonic love that will echo through the ages." --MariNaomi, author of "Kiss & Tell"
