heartBetween the sappy drugstore displays and ever multiplying flower stands, you’d be hard pressed not to notice the presence of Valentine’s Day. Cards will be exchanged, boycotts will be launched and our own annual “Six Words on Love & Heartbreak” storytelling show at the 92YTribeca will attempt to appease the cynics and romantics alike. Like so much of love these days, we want to have it both ways.

Meanwhile, on SMITHTeens the holiday has inspired memoirs on love and heartache in nearly equal measure. Below, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites. Click on each author’s name for more of his or her memoirs.
