TIME's ten top YA & children’s books of 2015

One of Time magazine's top ten YA and children’s books of 2015:
All the Bright Places, Jennifer Niven

Niven brings all the feels with a pair of quirky teenagers who meet by happenstance and are dealing with death and grief in different ways. The story follows Violet and Finch as they go from strangers to friends to each other’s saviors. Their relationship draws first-love nostalgia, but it’s the raw and alarmingly relevant depiction of depression that makes it a favorite for more than just teens.
Read about another entry on the list.

All The Bright Places is among Shaun Byron Fitzpatrick's seven new YA novels that deal with death.

Writers Read: Jennifer Niven (January 2015).
