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 Gayle Forman, Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven.

“At the heart—a big one—of “All the Bright Places” lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers.” 
 — New York Times Book Review 

“…this heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids named Violet and Finch is worth reading. Niven is a skillful storyteller who never patronizes her characters—or her audience.”

This book is just so emotionally beautifull. There are no other words to discribe it. It is so beautifully written, the words made me cry and i like that. I've read this book like 5 times and it still touches me every time i read it again. This book changed me and it gave me an other view of life. I look different to the world since i read the book. There is happiness in the little things you know. So thanks to Jennifer Niven for this awesome book!❤

I don't think I have ever read a more beautiful or heartbreaking book. Jennifer Niven has created incredibly real and moving characters, "UltraViolet Re-Markey-able" and Theodore Finch, stuck in a tiny town in Indiana. They meet on the top of a bell tower at school, each of them not knowing what they were going to do, and somehow, they saved each other. They are paired together for a school project to find the "natural wonders" of Indiana, and Violet, who has recently suffered from her sister's death, slowly learns to stop counting the days and start living. Slowly, or maybe not so slowly, Theodore and and Violet fall in love. Told in alternating points of view, All The Bright Places was so beautifully written.
