I loved this book. That should give you a good insight as to how this review will go but for now I am going to try and justify why I loved this book so much.

Violet and Finch, the main characters in this book, meet at the top of a bell tower at school where Finch talks Violet down from the ledge.

Violet is a popular girl at school where as Finch is seen as bit of a weirdo and the two would never normally hang out but they are given a school project where they have to explore the natural wonders of their state, Indiana forcing them to spend time together.

During their travels you end up finding out how they both ended up on the roof and although Violet starts off not being so keen on Finch you also get to see how their relationship grows and what effect it has on each other.

The book is told from both of their point of views and Jennifer Niven does a great job of creating two very clear different voices in the book and it is very well written.

For me, the reason this book gets such a high mark is because it tells such an incredible story and it really sucked me in and made me feel all the emotion, something that for me is the mark of a good book and although it deals with some incredibly heavy subjects it is done so with a way that really makes you think.

I seriously enjoyed this book and devoured it in about 2 days. I would wholeheartedly recommend picking it up, but be warned, you will most likely need tissues afterwards as I was left a blubbering mess.

Well that's book 3 on my list done, 14 more to go. Not too shabby!
