Let me just say,
I have not shed this amount of tears since TFIOS.
If I want to write a review, it’s going to be filled with spoilers. That is, if I could write one without sobbing and weeping for hours.
I hate comparing books, so I won’t compare this one to any others, no matter how good.
But for the ones who need a small shove/motivation, this book is a combination of My Heart And Other Black Holes, Papertowns and The Fault In Our Stars.
Yes, I actually had a hard time deciding if this book was worth 1 star or a million (nothing in between though), but I won’t be fair if I rated it a 1.
This one here, is a masterpiece.
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.
