Description : 

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.

My review : 5/5 stars

To be quite honest, this is my very first book I read for my 2017 reading challenge. I’ve never ever entered a reading challenge before, and 35 books will be my goal this year. Hopefully, I could reach it. Amen. So, enough for my rambling, let’s get to the review.I believe it’s just me who got bored in the 50-ish pages, because you know the first few pages are always introduction and kinda boring. I know it’s just me, don’t worry. But once I got into 150-ish pages I could not put my copy down, the story getting more interesting to read. Anyways, I’m sorry if I have to spoil it a little bit. The story starts with Violet who wants to jump off of her school bell tower, yet when she is up for jumping there’s this boy that gets on her way. He helps her to get down from the ledge. Sadly, the entire school believe that it’s Violet who asks the boy to not jump off. It makes the boy whose name is Finch, getting bullied more than before. Not really though, because he’s getting called names as well before. So it’s just getting worse.

Move to the next setting when the teacher having the students to wander all around the town for a project in U.S. Geography class. Finch is the first one to shout out to the class that he wants to get paired up with Violet. At first, Violet ain’t that into the idea. First place to wander, there’s that quite a lot tense between the pairs. But soon the time flies, the tenses fade away as well as Violet or Finch get a lot of time to knowing each other’s personal details. On the other hand, Finch keeps his family problem from getting out of his mouth very well.

I’m lost in the pages when Violet knows everything about Finch, Finch’s suicidical attempt to be exact. After that everything goes down, Finch is reported missing for quite sometime, leaving Violet some clues to find out Finch’s whereabout. Until the next few days later, Violet finds a clue that brings her to somewhere, lake look alike, their last stop to wander and Finch’s found death of drowning. Yet, Finch finishes their wander project first just before Violet does. In the end chapter, Violet keeps trying to move on from everything that happens in her life, moves on from the death of Eleanor, her sister who is death from the accident, and Finch.

That’s everything I could write here. I’m sorry if there are a lot of mistakes like mispelling, grammar error. I wish I could write better in the future. My second book for reading challenge was Pride and Prejudice “bahasa version” which I finished reading it as well. So, another book review comes up soon.
