Descrizione

OCD-afflicted Griffin has just lost his first love, Theo, in a drowning accident. In an attempt to hold onto every piece of the past, he forges a friendship with Theo's last boyfriend, Jackson. When Jackson begins to exhibit signs of guilt, Griffin suspects he's hiding something, and will stop at nothing to get to the truth about Theo's death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, readers will question Griffin's own version of the truth-both in terms of what he's willing to hide and what true love means.

    My heart is empty yet so full. Loved it so much!
  • (4/5)
    Great book. A little predictable in places. Really dives deep into grief and loss.

    ?????????????????????? Adam Silvera you cruel son of a bitch! WHY!
  • (4/5)
    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tom Picasso. I enjoyed the experience, even though I think he could've made the characters' voices more distinct from one another. That's my only complaint - otherwise, his voice was gripping, and he maintained a good reading pace.

    Adam Silvera was, however, the real star of the show. I've only read 'They Both Die At The End' and even though it didn't surprise me, I wanted to get to know his writing better. I'm glad it worked out so well. This book is so important, for so many reasons! First of all, because it tackles teenage death. For someone who suffers from anxiety, this was not an easy read. I hate to think about death, the main focus of this book. But I recognize it is an important topic. Not only because it gives you other perspectives on death (and everything that happens afterwards), but also because it deals with grief and how the living cope with it.
    Accidental teenage death is not a topic I read a lot about. Most teenagers that die in the literary world are victims of suicide, disease or murder. I 'appreciated' the remainder that young people die from ordinary causes as well. Young people have accidents too. And those who stay alive are left in shock, wondering what could've been but will never become.
    What I loved most about this book was how flawed every single one of the characters was. Silvera begins his narrative trying to make you feel compassion for our main character, but halfway through you won't stand him. Hell, you'll eventually hate everyone. Silvera shows us how there's a side to every story. You'll have to stop taking sides because everyone was in the wrong, at some point. This is a book about real lives, real mistakes and probable outcomes. Unlike 'Alice in Wonderland', Silvera tells a narrative that could be anyone's story.
    My only complaint may be how predictable some things were, even though I truly appreciated the Wade bomb. Nonetheless, Silvera's writing was flawless, engaging and very pure. Sometimes it felt like he was drawing from his personal experience. He could put things so naturally and simply, it felt like I was reading his diary.

    The book is good, but the narrator makes similar voices for different characters and sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking
  • (5/5)
    My eyes heart from crying since chapter 22. this is so heartachingly beautiful.
  • (5/5)
    The audio book is so calming and well recorded. And as for the book itself, it is a rollercoaster that will make a trainwreck out of you. But in such a lovely way

    The first book that made me love Silvera. It hurts at the same time it reminds you how being a human is.

    I teach English in Argentina, so it’s hard to find a guy school group that I can read this book with: students don’t have as many classes as to acquire a level high enough as to do it. However, if I had the chance, I would teach with this book. I would teach so much. About acceptance and grief; about OCD and mental issues; about diversity. It really hit home for me, as I read it soon after someone lose had passed, and I think what Adam Silvera did is truly remarkable.


    It’s a must read for everyone.

    IT WAS OKAY. Part of it was the narrator...
