How Do I Love Thee contains three stories about teens dealing with love and illness. The first story is about a boy who falls in love with a girl whose medical issues isolate her from the rest of the world. The second story is about a girl who is torn between her love of two brothers. The third story is about a chronically ill girls who falls in love with an ex-gang member who works at the hospital. I can see how McDaniel's novels would appeal to teens and young adults. The characters struggle with many of the issues that teenagers are dealing with everyday. It was a little dramatic for me, I have never been a fan of sad stories and they were a little to full of teenage angst for my tastes. Overall it was OK, but my appreciation for it suffered because I have recently read John Green's The Fault of Our Stars which covered similar issues and themes, but much better. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553571079, Mass Market Paperback)

Though written more than a century ago, Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s beautiful sonnet rings true today for three young couples who believe in the power of love.

In “Night Vision,” Brett finds a way to brighten a special girl’s lonely existence. “Bobby’s Girl” features Dana, who must choose between two brothers, both of whom she loves. “Laura’s Heart,” the third story, introduces 16-year-old Laura Carson, who is hospitalized on a regular basis because of her weak heart. But when tragedy strikes a loved one, she realizes her heart is stronger than she thought and that love lives on forever.

From the Hardcover edition.
