Summary from Amazon.co.uk:

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.


How amazing does this sound?! I can't wait to read it. I've heard so many good things about it for months, and Phil Earle tells me it's good so it must be. Roll on 2015!

I absolutely adore the cover on this! Thanks for posting this. Somehow, I missed the three starred reviews it has received here in the U.S. Honestly, I astound myself sometimes.
