My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book…it starts off a little slow and then all of the sudden I felt like was punched in the face, knocked down, and then kicked in side. Wow. It’s a great wonderful tragic story. .
The Germ Magazine is a brilliant idea. It’s a great resource for Young Adults.
I am interested to see who will be playing Finch when the movie comes out. They already picked Elle Fanning for Violet.
All the Bright Places
by Jennifer Niven
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Gayle Forman, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven.
