REVIEW: All the Bright Places

Jenn Hubb, who blogs at Lost in a Great Book, is a self-described proud geek, lifelong book lover, and teacher-librarian in Ontario, Canada, as well as a Round 1 judge for YA Fiction this year. Earlier in the year she reviewed YA Fiction nominee All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, which has been ambitiously described as “The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park.” In her review, she described the book as a must-read:

“Mental illness, including depression, bipolar disorders and suicidal thoughts, is on the rise with our youth. The statistics are staggering, and troubling. Writing about youth with mental health issues is equally difficult, and it’s a credit to debut author Jennifer Niven that she has produced such a remarkable and heart wrenching novel.”
