Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. Popular girl, Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape Indiana 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. Witty dialogue, solid characters and wonderful writing made me fall in love with this book. I will be reading more by this author.
CAUTION: This book deals with mental illness & suicide.
