#BookReview of My Heart and Other Black Holes by @jasminewarga


My Heart and Other Black Holes
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: HarperCollins/Balzer + Bray
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary, Mental Health
About the Book: 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: 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.






About the Author: 
Hi. I'm Jasmine. My first novel, My Heart and Other Black Holes, will be published in 2015 by Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins. I'm currently writing my second book which is tentatively scheduled to be published in 2016.

I like emotive music, animals of all sorts, lemonade, and Swedish Fish. And books.

Do I Recommend this book? Yes yes yes!!

Notes and Opinions: I'm so in love with the cover!! I honestly didn't know what to expect from this book. At first I thought it might bore me but oh no. Far from it. I felt so connected to the characters. I feel so bad for Aysel and I just want to hug her. The message behind the story and how it's dealt with are done beautifully. Depression is a hard subject to talk about. I can promise you, you'll spend the whole book crying (a bit of laughing too). 10/10 would recommend!
