An epic story of love, loss and pining for fans of One Day.

It’s the year 2000. I’m fourteen. I’m trying really hard to be a grunger right now in a Foo Fighters t-shirt and a spiked choker. There were rumours that the world was going to end. It hadn’t as of yet but I still had reasons to believe that was true.

Ella and Lowe are teenagers when they first meet in summer 2000. For her, it’s love at first sight. But it’s safest to love from afar, where the friendship zone is her safety net and she can’t get hurt.

Certain that the most beautiful boy she's ever seen couldn't possibly feel the same, Ella counts herself lucky to have him as her best friend. Over the next fifteen years they share everything: bottles of cider and cigarettes in the rain, gossip and laughter, grief and fear.

But every time Lowe kisses another girl, Ella feels her heart break just that little bit more. She'll have to choose whether it's enough to be just friends with the love of her life, or if she's prepared to let the terrifying, beautiful, all-consuming truth come to light.

From a unique new voice in adult fiction, I Love You, I Love You, I Love You is a glorious nostalgia trip for anyone who has ever known the exquisite pain and pleasure of first love.

This author’s books have the ability to simultaneously make you unable to stop reading while wishing you could bury the book somewhere deep underground where it can't be found. Compelling and didn’t want it to end!

Do not be fooled by the title, this is not your average romcom! Ella takes us back into our own childhoods with the music, culture and all the feelings of first love. We go through every heart break and insecurity with her but also the side quests of the important people propping her up and I was there for every second. I loved this book and could not put it down. I loved Ella and I loved Lowe and I loved Jackson too. Read this book, but prepare for it to break you.
For anyone who enjoys a good love story, a bit of nostalgia or who still remembers their first love fondly,

Really enjoyed this book! I laughed so much reading it.

Ella and Lowe meet when they are teenagers. It's love at first sight for her but he just sees her as a friend. The story spans from their teenage years until they are in their thirties. Set when mobiles were just starting to be a thing for teenagers, msn messenger and dial up internet. The characters in the book are great and so realistic. With all her friends getting engaged, married and having babies will Ella and her boyfriend Jackson follow or does she hold a candle still for her first love.

Well. I was not expecting to fall so hard for this book. Comparing to ‘One Day’ always makes me a little uneasy - I adored that book, so I tend to read “comparisons” a little harshly.

Dockrill’s writing is beautiful. From crafting place to person, she creates environments where the reader too falls in love. The two storylines weave perfectly, and I fell hard for the main characters. This story was so relatable.

One of those novels that’s given me a strong book hangover.

I loved it, I loved it, I loved it.

An absolute nod to all of us who were teenagers in the 2000’s. Every page was filled with my teenage years, the smile never left my face.
The story of Ella and Lowe is now one of my favourite stories, ever. I absolutely broke down towards the end, my heart was breaking for Ella ( and Lowe ), their history, their lives. The most perfect book. Thank you!

Omg this book. I read it in a day! I just couldn't put it down. The characters are so strong and relatable. I loved Ella so much and her life and behaviours often made me laugh out loud. Her relationship with Lowe is just gorgeous, so slow burning and gradual but there are points that just make you want to cry out in frustration (in a good way) and weep,
Loved this book. Didn't want it to end and I will be shouting about it everywhere.
