A stunning novel about the transformative power of love, perfect for fans of Jay Asher and Laurie Halse Anderson.
Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.
There's only one problem: she's not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel's convinced she's found her solution—Roman, a teenage boy who's haunted by a family tragedy, is looking for a partner. Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other's broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together.

Although this book is quite good, you have to be in a certain mood in order to read it. It's really heavy and at times, hard to read, however, it is too good not to read. Although it is dark, it's teenagers, the target audience of this book, and it's topic people need to be aware of.
This book was amazing. I loved how deep it was and how the characters interacted with each other. I liked the darkness of the issues and all of their troubles they faced made the book that much more interesting. I loved this book so much. I've read it twice definitely one of my favorites.
