SynopsisSixteen-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: a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman) 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. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince.

My Thoughts: This was another one of my most anticipated books for 2015. I loved this book. I will say that if you have suicidal thoughts or tendencies it may not be the best book for you to read as it is a little dark and focuses on suicide. I tend to read quite a bit of books with darker topics. This story is beautiful and the characters are amazing. I loved the way things went in this book. I have a feeling this is a book I will end up reading again because it was so well done.
