All the Bright Places (Large Print / Paperback)
Finch and Violet meet at the top of the school’s bell tower and both are considering jumping. It’s not unusual for Finch to be there; planning on how to kill himself is an almost daily occurrence. But Violet, whose sister recently died in a car accident, is new to struggling with the darkness. The two become partners in geography class and form a friendship that leads to a romance. Told in two voices, this is a beautiful, heartbreaking YA debut from Jennifer Niven. For grades 9 and up.— Cathy
