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.

I really have no clue what to think of this. As a person who doesn't remember a time she wasn't suicidal to some degree, I can sympathize with these characters. I also feel for Finch because his family is so bent on turning a blind eye to the obvious mental illness he suffers from. My mom never admi...
I don't read much YA these days; my sister and I have been discussing the possibility that we've "outgrown" the genre, but I don't want to contribute to the argument that YA shouldn't be read by adults. I just haven't found myself interested lately. I needed an audiobook for a road trip and this p...
I read plenty of crappy books. The world is, after all, a crappy place (That’s why people kill themselves). Never have I read a book that offended me as much as this. I’d rather read the file about the crimes of Ian Watkins.Suicide is close to me. My relationship with it is special. I’m passionate a...
