All The Bright Places is a YA contemporary novel. We meet Finch who is obsessed about death and suicide. He constantly think about suicides and how he should go through with his own but something good always comes up when he’s about to finally do it.
Violet counts the days until graduation and the time when she can finally get out of the town and away from all the memories. Her older sister died in a car accident and Violet no longer knows what to do with her life without her sister there. All of the things she used to love suddenly no longer matters.
Finch and Violet meet each other on the ledge of the school bell tower and it is uncertain who rescues who from taking the leap.
Then they pair up to work together on a school project where they are supposed to discover the wonders of their home state they both learn so much more from each other.
But no matter how lovely a time they’re having, Finch can’t shake off that dark monster that lurks in his brain.
Wow.. Where do I start here? This book was an amazing read and one that got me warm and fuzzy and sad at the same time. I haven’t felt that way about a book since I read The Fault in Our Stars. Gosh I bawled my eyes out and I giggled.
A great story about an important subject of depression and feeling different.
I enjoyed both Violet and Finch as characters and I loved the dynamic between them and how that grew and changed throughout the book.
Warm, beautiful, heartbreaking, lovely, funny and so sad. All at once, neatly wrapped in a gorgeous little package!
If you want something to read that gives you all kinds of feels then this is the way to go!
“He says, “ ‘Lovely’ is a lovely word that should be used more often.”
