''12 Reasons Why I Love Her'' is a graphic novel by writer Jamie S. Rich and artist Joelle Jones, published in 2006 by Oni Press.
It falls into the RomanticComedy genre, with some Drama sprinkles here and there, telling a casual BoyMeetsGirl story, through non-linear narrative. In essence, we follow Gwen, ''The Girl'', and Evan, ''The Boy'', through the ups and downs of their romantic life.
The book consists of 12 individual chapters, each of which shows the couple in a different point in their relationship, while also providing a song to accompany it, with the sole exception being the, song-less, Prologue-mini-chapter.
