A Couple Of Kooks And Other Stories About Love by Cynthia RylantStories of love--meaning various aspects of love. The book is written for young adults, which explains its simple writing (not complaining).
Even though written for young adults the touches deals with different kinds of love, requited an unrequited, parental love for children, love for the unborn and love for the dead.
My favourite is A Crush, which is a story about a young disabled man who feels a stirring in his heart and does not understand it.
Each story will touch your heart. And each story deals with a different age group --so it is truly a book that covers love across age and ability.

Thank you! Eight entrancing, offbeat stories sample the vast range of possibilities when ordinary people are drawn to each other. A retarded adult plants seeds from the bright packets that are his only memento of his mother, then makes a secret offering of the resulting flowers to the sturdy, loveless woman who runs the hardware store. A couple of kids admire each other but never speak--like children who ""find themselves in a rage simply because they cannot say yes when they mean yes. Humans are very complicated. With no one to counsel her about sex, an orphan writes to her dead mother for advice about a boy who says he's got to have it.
