First of all, I am speechless, in so many different ways. You must read this book, if you can handle it. I’m not sure I can. This book will send you into a frenzy of different emotions, and at the end you will want more. It will have you thinking so many thoughts, too many to count, and your head will be filled with quotes. So many beautiful, different quotes. You’ll want to write them down and stick them on your wall, like Finch does.
This is what it’s about, and don’t worry, I won’t give spoilers.
This book focuses on the lives of Violet Markey (or Ultraviolet Remarkey-able) and Theodore Finch (or just Finch).
Violet is grieving over her sister, who recently died in a tragic accident.
Finch is suicidal, and his world is shrinking day by day.
They first meet on the ledge of the school tower, where they are both considering jumping, until they see each other.
Suddenly, Finch becomes engrossed in the life of Violet, and becomes desperate to get to know her better. He takes it upon himself to become her partner in a school project for their U.S. Geography class, where they must visit and in their case, wander different parts of Indiana, where they live. They discover the most unique and wacky parts, and it has made me want to go there someday.
Graduation is approaching, and so is college. Violet is counting down the days and crossing them off on her calendar, until she meets Finch.
Finch wants to protect Violet, he wants her to live, he wants her not to be stopped by her own shadow, or the shadow of her lost sister, but as her world begins to come alive again, his begins to stop.
This is an amazing story, and the characters are so complex and absolutely brilliant, you will fall in love with Violet, but most of all you will fall in love with Finch, the most intriguing, wild, unpredictable, lovable character I have ever come across.
