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 book is a really good depiction of depression and mental illness, the way a bad mood can consume someone who is already standing on the ledge.

4.0 All The Bright Places: My Thoughts
So All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. Stars : 4.5/5. This book nearly made me cry which is why it's lacking half a star. Sometimes if the book was so good that it nearly made me cry, I don't give it the 5 stars that it deserves. I'm weird like that. This book was written very well. I was ...

4.0 Book 31/100: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
This is one of those books that inspires complicated feelings. Is it possible to write a book about teens and suicide that doesn't inspire complicated feelings? I've certainly never read one -- but it's something writers need to keep writing about, and that we need to keep talking about. My biggest ...

5.0 All the Bright Places
The story is about a girl learning to live from a boy who intends to die. Where do I start? For all the reviewers who say this book is a rip-off of The Fault In Our Stars, I can understand the sentiment, but I disagree. It's a book about teenagers dealing with death and finding each other in the mid...
