Heather's August 2015 pick

All the Bright Places, by Jennifer Niven

So much beauty depends on how you look at something. Your outlook and your perspective defines your world. Your view can create boundaries, tear them down, provide safety or grant you freedom.
What if you climbed a tower to gain perspective, to regain control or to get away. What if you stepped out on the very edge of that tower to see how easy it would be to step off, or  to test if you could not step off... and then you...met someone?

This is such a beautiful and heart breaking book. It deserves all the praise. Finch and Violet are characters that will stay with you for a long time. It's an honest and uplifting look at suicide, depression and bipolar disorder. Yes that is possible. But be prepared to cry a bit too.

— From Heather Weirich Roy

A 2016 Zoella Book Club Pick

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 is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Gayle Forman, Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven.

"At the heart--a big one--of "All the Bright Places" lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers."
-- New York Times Book Review

..".this heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids named Violet and Finch is worth reading. Niven is a skillful storyteller who never patronizes her characters--or her audience."
-- Entertainment Weekly
