Finished History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. I received a copy for review.
Griffin and Theo were in love and then they split up. Griffin will tell you it’s for a good reason (Theo’s off in California, going to college) and that they’re still endgame. But then Theo starts dating a new guy. Not ideal but still something that can be overcome.
But then Theo dies.
This novel goes back and forth in time, showing us their relationship, the aftermath of their breakup and then present day, post-Theo. Except, as anyone who’s ever grieved will tell you, it’s never really post-someone you love.
This book is gorgeous but it will break you. It’s worth it–Adam Silvera is an actual genius, I think–but it hurts. But it’s also perfect.
