A Thrilling and Heart-Breaking Story of Love Between Violet and Finch
Theodore Finch is captivated by death. Daily he imagines ways he might die, but he also looks for and finds reasons to keep himself awake and alive.
Violet Markey exists for the future. She is counting the days until graduation, so she can get away from her Indiana hometown and her sorrow over her sister’s death.
After meeting on the ledge of the bell tower at school—six stories above the ground—the unlikely pair partners for a class project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state. They go where the road takes them and soon it’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself. And it’s only with Finch that Violet starts living each day instead of crossing it off. However, as Violet’s world expands, Finch’s begins to disappear.
All the Bright Places has many melancholic elements, including suicide, violence, sex, and mental health issues.
