All The Bright Places

“She is oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. The same elements that are inside the rest of us, but I can’t help thinking she’s more than that and she’s got other elements going on that no one’s ever heard of, ones that make her stand apart from everybody else. I feel this brief panic as I think, What would happen if one of those elements malfunctioned or just stopped working altogether? I make myself push this aside and concentrate on the feel of her skin until I no longer see molecules but Violet.” 

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (paperback by Penguin Books) was described as a love story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die. Violet Markey is super popular, great looking and smart but has a hard time dealing with her older sister's recent death. Theodore Finch, the school's "freak", is constantly flirting with the idea of taking his life. When they meet on the ledge of their high school bell tower, they end up saving each other.
