When I hear a book is being made into a movie I will read it, every time no matter what. It's my weakness. All The Bright Places features two teenagers, Violet and Finch. They struggle with severe mental illness and this is their journey together. Violet wants to do better and be better and is hopeful. Finch has darker demons. Be prepared to feel all the feels with these characters--the hope, despair, loneliness, adrenalin high, and loss. *I wish I had been warned how intense this story is, so here's your warning! Would recommend for 18 and older*
“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.”
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death. Every day he thinks of ways he might kill himself, but every day he also searches for—and manages to find—something to keep him here, and alive, and awake.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her small 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—six stories above the ground— it’s unclear who saves whom.
Soon it’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself. 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. . . .
“It's my experience that people are a lot more sympathetic if they can see you hurting, and for the millionth time in my life I wish for measles or smallpox or some other easily understood disease just to make it easier on me and also on them.”
