My Heart and Other Black Holes

(4)

Alive with intensity, gut-wrenching honesty, moments of humor, and—of course—heart. Not to be missed.”—Nova Ren Suma, author of Imaginary Girls and The Walls Around Us

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.

Wunderschön und sehr einfühlsam wird hier ein sehr schwieriges Thema angesprochen. Eines meiner absolut liebsten Jugendbücher, welches aber auch Erwachsene lesen können. Klasse!

She is a physics nerd, he is a sportsman - in high school those two usually don't mix that well. But there's one thing they have in common: Aysel and Roman both have to deal with a difficult past and want to end their lives. They meet on a suicide platform and decide to become suicide partners. But as their plan gets more and more concrete, Aysel starts to doubt whether or not they really are doing the right thing... I very much enjoyed reading this book. It has obviously a very dark theme, but it is also very optimistic at the same time. Despite its grave topic it also offers some humor and I really liked how it all fit together. Reading it I was alternately sad, scared, anxious and excited and I could really empathize with the characters. Due to its theme I recommend this book to teenagers aged 14 and up.
