"This book by Jennifer Adams richly illuminates issues central to contemporary communication inquiry by exploring the development of interpersonal relationships across changing media and cultural moments… The extensive research she performed to tell this story is quietly magnificent… Do not miss this wise and affecting tale of love and learning."
