All The Bright Places

All The Bright Places
By: Jennifer Niven.
This book has 388 pages.
I recommend this book to anyone who is thirteen and older.
 This book contains a lot of serious content, so please make sure you can handle the content before reading the book!
Just like so many books that I have read, I enjoyed how this book had alternating points of view.
It allowed the readers to follow the journey of the two main characters and understand what both of them are going through personally.
I can honestly say that this book has definitely changed my perspective on certain situations.
We all have to remember that what we say to people and how we act towards them impacts them no matter how much they may deny it.
In this book, Finch is the perfect example of that.
Finch tries to act tough and make it seem like what people say about him doesn't matter to him. He doesn't want people to think that he is weak.
He is well known as the freak.
I give this book a 5 out of 5!

Summary:
Violet and Finch are the two people who you would never expect to end up being friends. 
 Finch is the mysterious type of guy that stands out from the crowd. Violet is the popular cheerleader that is living the dream of a high school girl.
What people don't know is that both of them are dealing with very serious issues. 
The bell tower is a place where Finch has gone to many times. Not necessarily to jump, but to see what it would be like if he jumped. Would people care? He thinks people wouldn't care. Little does he know that a lot of people would  genuinely care. 
At the same time, Violet decides to see what's like on the bell tower. We all know she's not up there for the view. 
It's never really clear who saves who. People start to notice that she is up there.
A rumor gets spread around that Violet is the hero and saved Finch the Freak.
People tend to assume certain things based off of stereotypes. 
There is no such thing as a good stereotype.
Violet and Finch are both seniors in high school wanting to desperately graduate and start life the way that they want to.
But at the same time, Finch does't know if he'll even make it to tomorrow.
Everyday Violet marks off the day until graduation.
Violet and Finch end up partners for a class project.
Their assignment is to travel around the state that they live in, which is Indiana, and write down all the good stuff.
After a while it's clear that they both have feelings for each other.
But can two broken souls end up together?
At times the book definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.
The author did a good job of giving you this feeling of feeling speechless when certain things happen.
Reading this book will be worth it.
Also I wanted to say, if anyone ever needs someone to talk to, I am always here!
Let me know what you think of the book!
