Blurb; 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.
My Review; I was recommend to read this book by a friend and boy I wasn’t disappointed. It literally is like the next The Fault In Our Stars. The ending broke me. What a brilliant, eye opening story.
The friendship that emerges between Violet and Finch is beautiful, unique and rare. They embark on a beautiful sight seeing journey together which ends with Violet doing it alone… But is she really alone? I had tears in my eyes reading this. There are some gorgeous moments shared between these two.
It’s a story with a hidden message… Thought provoking. It’s still relevant today. Outstanding. Beautifully written. Highly recommend, perfect for fans of The Fault In Our Stars and young adult. I’ve heard it’s being turned into a film? I really hope so. A well deserved five stars from me.
