Theodore Finch is fascinated by death. Every day he thinks of ways he might kill himself, but every day he also searches for—and manages to find—something to keep him here, and alive, and awake.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her small 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—six stories above the ground— it’s unclear who saves whom. Soon it’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself. 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 . . .
Quotes from All The Bright Places
You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.
The thing I realize is, that it’s not what you take, it’s what you leave.
We do not remember days, we remember moments.
The great thing about this life of ours is that you can be someone different to everybody.
You make me lovely, and it’s so lovely to be lovely to the one I love.
