A compelling and beautiful story about a girl who learns to live, from a boy who wants to die. The New York Times bestseller is soon to be a major film starring Elle Fanning _________ Theodore Finch is fascinated by death. He's constantly thinking of ways he could kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey is waiting for the future. She's counting down the days until she graduates, escapes her Indiana town and her aching grief for her sister's recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, they don't know who saves whom. Soon, they make more important discoveries: It's only with Violet that Finch can be himself, and it's only with Finch that Violet can start to actually live her days, instead of counting them. But as Violet's world grows, Finch's begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?
