All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

All the Bright Places

The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park in this compelling, exhilarating, and beautiful story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.

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.

This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Gayle Forman, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennif
er Niven.

Expected Publication: January 6th VIA Penguin

My Thoughts:

I want to read more YA contemporary in 2015 and I think this book sounds like a great first 2015 contemporary read of the year!


  1. I really love Jennifer Niven and didn't know she had a YA book coming out. This sounds wonderful!

  2. I have seen this one around and it looks really cute. I love that line in the synopsis "The Fault in Our meets Eleanor and Park" it makes me want to pick it up!
