“When you share a feeling with someone it takes on matter and weight. Even if you’re the only one who can sense it, it becomes a tangible thing with properties like shape and weight and heat.”
This book felt like a combination of All the Bright Places and a John Green novel. And I absolutely loved it!!
It will make you laugh, make you cry, make you take a step back and really think about life. It teaches you about life, about yourself, and about the things people go through. It gives you hope and breaks your heart and takes things to a whole new level.
I was absolutely blown away by this book. The writing was amazing, the characters were real, the story was an adventure. The story itself was a little over the top but I guess it had to be to really get across the message. And I really think that part of the message is that mental illness cannot be ignored. It shouldn’t be something people are afraid to talk about. It’s something everyone needs to be comfortable with because it is one of life’s inevitabilities. There are people with mental illnesses and we must accost that and help them.
I highly recommend this book.
