"Heartbreak comes in all forms, this one will really touches your heart"

Fresh Fiction Review

History is All You Left Me
Adam Silvera

Reviewed by Sharon Salituro

Young Adult | Gay / Lesbian

Griffin has been in love with Theo for years, and even though they are both teenagers, they know that they belong together. But when Griffin loses Theo to drowning, he has no idea what to do. They had broken up and Theo had found someone else. This didn't stop them from still being great friends.

Jackson, Theo's boyfriend at the time of his death, had a lot in common with Griffin. The two most important men in Theo's life shared mannerisms, maybe that's why Theo found himself drawn to both. But after Theo's death, Griffin and Jackson try to form a bond and mourn together. Even to the point where they sleep together. But is this a step forward, or just a way for two heartbroken young men to find solace in the arms of another person who understands their pain.

Adam Silvera, you brought tears to my eyes. What a great story of young love. I was so impressed the way that you went from present to past, which brought the whole story together. I found myself really loving the characters in this story and I couldn't decide whose side to be on, Griffin who loved Theo so much, or Theo who had enough love for two people. Because of Theo's death, history is all you left.

I also like the way the family stood behind both boys. Not being upset at all that they were in love. Both set of parents did their best to try and help Griffin, while still trying to mourn their son's death. My heart was broke for Griffin and Jackson. Who loved him more, hard to tell? Going through so much at a young age. But both coming out as better men. HISTORY IS ALL YOU HAVE LEFT is an unforgettable book.

Heartbreak comes in all forms, this one will really touches your heart.

SUMMARY

OCD-afflicted Griffin has just lost his first love, Theo, in a drowning accident. In an attempt to hold onto every piece of the past, he forges a friendship with Theo's last boyfriend, Jackson. When Jackson begins to exhibit signs of guilt, Griffin suspects he's hiding something, and will stop at nothing to get to the truth about Theo's death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, readers will question Griffin's own version of the truth—both in terms of what he's willing to hide and what true love means.
