“All the Bright Places” By Jennifer Niven


This is the story of a boy and girl who you would never expect to have anything in common. Theodore Finch is known as the “weird” boy who has a very strong interest in death and fascinates himself by thinking of ways to commit suicide. Violet Markey blame’s herself for her sister’s death, and is constantly waiting for the future to come faster so she can get out of the small town that reminds her of her sister at every turn. Theodore and Violet have never really crossed paths until the day they both end up on top of the bell tower. That is where Violet saves Theodore, or is it the other way around? Violet and Theodore end up working together on a project where they explore their boring town. Theodore shows Violet the best places around, and they become adventurers. Unfortunately, while Violet begins to enjoy her life, Theodore’s life crumbles into pieces. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven takes you on a wild journey of heartbreak and the sadder parts of life. I chose to read this book because it was easy to see it would be a beautiful story between an unlikely match. The main reason I finished this book was because it was a unique story with a tragic twist. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a tragic but fascinating story in the Young Adult genre.
