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
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
sisterâ€™s recent death.
When Finch and Violet
meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, itâ€™s unclear
who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to
discover the â€śnatural wondersâ€ť of their state, both Finch
and Violet make more important discoveries: Itâ€™s only with
Violet that Finch can be himselfâ€”a weird, funny,
live-out-loud guy whoâ€™s not such a freak after all. And itâ€™s
only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the
days and start living them. But as Violetâ€™s world grows,
Finchâ€™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.
