Book 3: "All The Bright Places" by Jennifer Niven
I'm going to be very up front with this one by saying that it's most definitely not for everyone. This book involves mental illness, abusive parents, suicide, high school bullies, and the stigma against people with mental illnesses and suicide.

Despite having some really heavy topics, Niven has worked in the perfect amount of humor and romance. You gain a strong attachment to the main characters to the point where you wish you could jump into the story and help them. The scary part is how easy it is to empathize with what the characters are going through because the depiction of High School and the ages of the characters is so accurate. We can all remember High School and when we were that age.

This book had me up at 2 in the morning 2 nights in a row. I would cry and laugh and want to scream at the pages in my hands. I held onto this book like my life depended on it for 3 days, and in my opinion it was 3 days well spent. This emotional roller coaster of a book is at the top of my list of recommendations.
