All the Bright Places (Niven, Jennifer)

8/10

All the Bright Places

 

Synopsis

Theodore Finch wants to take his own life. Violet Markey is devastated by her sister’s death. They meet on the ledge of the school bell tower, and so their story begins. It’s only together they can be themselves… But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

This book was beautiful, sad but beautiful. It deals with mental illnesses in a sensitive manner, bringing light upon illnesses that once were scoffed at, or thought to differentiate between a ‘crazy’ person and a normal person. Theodore Finch is an eccentric character with heaps of talent for music and song-writing and I love his character. I found Violet a less interesting and believable character as almost seemed false in what she was feeling. The romance between these two characters was not one hundred percent believable as their reactions to and around each other, felt to me, incorrect.

However, overall I would definitely recommend this book to teens of all ages, even though it deals with adult themes, it is a must-read story!
