All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Violet and Finch, two damaged teenagers, meet for the first time on the top of a high school bell tower, both inclined to jump. Finch talks Violet off the ledge, and gallantly forces her to be the hero, as his reputation as a “freak” is already beyond repair. As their relationship grows, we see the physical and emotional scars from trying to navigate in a world where accidents happen and good people suffer. 

The story of Violet and Finch is wonderful and heartbreaking. The characters are compelling, and the tone very similar to Eleanor and Park. It’s a vivid window into the teenage heart, and one you won’t soon forget.
