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.
My Rating: ★★★★★
All the Bright Places (92%) was an amazing, eye-opening book that surprised me at every page turn. I didn't go into this book knowing a lot about it, and I think that really helped me embrace the entire story.
First off, I absolutely loved the characters Jennifer Niven created. Finch is a boy who as always had the rough road, being tormented at school, and his parents divorcing when he was young. Violet is a girl who is living life to the fullest until she loses her sister in a car accident that she survives. They are both super relatable and easy to like, which I think really adds to this story.
All the Bright Places is a love story, but it is really a book about suicide and mental health and losing the people you care about. It is something a lot of books and other story platforms really don't talk about as much, just because they are such sensitive subjects. I think it is great that books are starting to address these issues, and let teenagers know that they aren't alone.
Overall, if you are looking for a romance novel, this one's for you. If you are suffering from mental health problems, this one is also for you. And if you are looking for a book just for the sake of reading a book, this one is for you, too. ;)
