All the bright places is a 2015 young adult novel by Jennifer Niven. The work was first published on January 6,2015 through Knopf publishing group. It is a phenomenal book that looks at the idea that despite your love for someone,it isn’t always possible to save them. Violet Markey and Theodore Finch meet at the top of the bell tower when both are contemplating suicide and it is unclear who saves who but they both survive. Violet is coming to terms with a past tragedy and Finch is battling with his mental health.

The book first touches upon love and how quickly you can fall for someone, but also the pain that comes when your idea of forever love ends after a few months. The characters think that love can help them battle and save each other’s lives. They both try but couldn’t fix anything. Violet is so consumed with guilt and Finch is so obsessed with death.
