Review: All the Bright Places

 Right here we have an absolute MUST READ.
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 him. 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 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: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy 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.

Summary: Finch and Violet's first interaction is an extremely unusual situation. This made them subconsciously fixated on each other. Finch is the school freak and jack ass, as well as the well-built class clown. Violet was your average popular pretty cheerleader, with a beautiful boyfriend, but when someone close to you dies, you change. They come together and take reader's on a journey.
PROS: This book was beautiful, touching, and a slap in the face. It was written realistically, and it makes you look at the world around you and wonder. I really did get obsessed with this novel and I know for a fact I will be obsessed with the movie once it comes out.
CONS: The beginning seems to start off slowly, however, what you're feeling is simply nerves because you just want to know what happens. Don't blame the book.
RATE: An easy 5 out of 5 books (because books are better than stars).
