➴ Theodore Finch wants to die. He thinks of many different ways to kill himself but something always stops him.

Violet Markey is counting down the days till graduation. She was in a car accident with her sister, she survived and her sister did not. She is overwhelmed with guilt and longs to leave her home town.

Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of their school’s bell tower and after Finch helps Violet back to safety, he feels compelled to protect her.

They are both paired up on a school project together where they are required to discover the wonders of their state. With Violet, Finch can truly be himself and with Finch, Violet learns to live again. It’s only with him that she stops counting down the days until graduation and goes back to the girl she was before the accident.

But while Violets life is getting back on track, Finch’s is spiralling out of control. Will Violets love be enough to save Finch or is Finch already too far gone?

➴ This novel is unbelievable, it filled me with so many emotions, I laughed, I smiled, I cried (a lot). The novel jumps between Finch and Violet’s point of view, which I loved because it gave you the chance to understand what was going on in each of their heads, why they feel the way they do, why they think the way they do. I fell in love with these two characters, they are both struggling with their own issues; sadness, loss, etc. and then they find each other and fall in love. They both help each other in different ways which is lovely. The author has done an incredible job at making the story seem realistic and keeping the readers engaged (I wanted to read and read and read!) She has tackled so many difficult subjects and though this novel is very deep, I do recommend it to anyone but do keep in mind that it does mention suicide frequently and may be triggering to some people. With all that in mind, it is a heartbreakingly beautiful story that you should definitely consider reading.
