Review quote

At the heart a big one of All the Bright Places lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers.
New York Times Book Review
this heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids named Violet and Finch is worth reading. Niven is a skillful storyteller who never patronizes her characters or her audience.
Entertainment Weekly
Many teen novels touch on similar themes, but few do it so memorably.
"Kirkus Reviews, s"tarred review
"In her YA debut, adult author Niven creates a romance so fresh and funny. . . The journey to, through, and past tragedy is romantic and heartbreaking, as characters and readers confront darkness, joy, and the possibilities and limits of love in the face of mental illness.
" Publishers Weekly," starred review
The writing in this heartrending novel is fluid, despite the difficult topics Finch in particular will linger in readers minds long after the last page is turned.
" School Library Journal," starred review

"Ultimately, the book, with narration that alternates between Finch and Violet, becomes Violet s story of survival and recovery, affirming the value of loving deeply, grieving openly, and carrying your light forward."

"The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

SELF Magazine
"It s touching, vibrant, and an impressively honest depiction of depression."
