Description

A brilliant and heartbreaking novel perfect for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why. Aysel and Roman are practically strangers, but they've been drawn into an unthinkable partnership. In a month's time, they plan to commit suicide - together. Aysel knows why she wants to die: being the daughter of a murderer doesn't equal normal, well-adjusted teenager. But she can't figure out why handsome, popular Roman wants to end it all....and why he's even more determined than she is. With the deadline getting closer, something starts to grow between Aysel and Roman - a feeling she never thought she would experience. It seems there might be something to live for, after all - but is Aysel in so deep she can't turn back?show more

Review quote

'This delicately handled and intimate portrayal of adolescent angst is an uplifting affirmation of the power of love and forgiveness to heal and restore. It's a brave and exciting debut novel that addresses an important issue with wit, compassion and authentic teenage voices' * Daily Mail * 'This book proved hard to put down - both characters had my heart aching for them' -- Book Club Forum 'Powerful...sucked me right in' -- The Book Bag 'A stunning and haunting depiction of depression - you really feel Aysel's numbness. I had to take 'emotional recovery' breaks while reading it. My Heart And Other Black Holes handles the sensitive topic of suicide expertly, with absolutely no patronizing or glamorization. And yet, the book leaves you with such a warm feeling of hope. It's a remarkable achievement' -- Holly Bourne, author of Soulmates 'Earnest and heartfelt . . . any teen who's ever felt like an outsider will be able to relate to Aysel's and Roman's fully realized characters' * Kirkus Reviews * 'Kinetic and beautiful and unexpectedly life-affirming' -- Chris Lynch, author of Inexcusable 'A striking new voice in YA fiction' -- Nova Ren Suma, author of Imaginary Girlsshow more
