Book Review: All The Bright Places

It's time for a book review!  I have been talking about this book in my last couple of posts and I finally finished it.  It's been awhile since I was this into a book.  I could not put it down!  I read 100 pages in 15 minutes because I just had to know what was happening next.  I actually saw this book on Zoe's YouTube channel and thought it sounded interesting.  I'm SO glad I checked it out!

Here is the description from Barnes & Noble.  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.

I absolutely LOVED this book.  It really gave a whole new insight on mental problems.  I've never known anybody with a mental issue but I've often wondered how their mind works.  This book made me understand it a lot better.  I thought the character's were very relatable even though I've never went through what they did.  I was not prepared for the ending!  Be prepared for tears!  This book is a YA book but I think anybody would enjoy it.  I'm actually sad it's over!  It is being made into a film but I'm not sure they will be able to capture everything like the book does.  I highly recommend this!  Have you read this book?  Let me know your thoughts.
