Theodore Finch wants to take his own life. I'm broken, and no one can fix it.

Violet Markey us devastated by her sister's death. In that instant we went plowing through the guardrail, my words died too.

They meet on the ledge of the school bell tower, and so their story begins. It's only together they can be themselves . . .

I send a message to Violet: 'You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.'

You're so weird, Finch. But that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.


But, as Violet's world grows, Finch's begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?

                  The book is great, although the end makes it disabled to multiple readings. It shows the hardships of growing up and show the perspective of a boy who is bipolar and a girl who is devastated by her sisters death.
