Drawn together on the ledge of the Bell Tower, Violet and Finch have more in common than either would have ever guessed. Reeling from her sister’s accidental death, Violet resets on phrases like “I’m not ready” and “extenuating circumstances” to get her through the few remaining days of high school. Constantly afraid of slipping into a dark mood, Theodore Finch marks his time “awake”, often shedding different looks – 80s Finch, Nerdy Finch, Badass Finch – and doing and saying things others don’t expect, which leads to his unfortunate nickname of “Theodore Freak”. But together they are wanders, they are Ultraviolet and deep blue holes, they are poetic lines and Jovian-Plutonian gravitational effects and they are lovely. Yes, there is sadness in this book but there is so much loveliness too and I promise Violet and Finch will not leave your heart after this story ends!
