Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland

Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can’t-eat-can’t-sleep kind of love that he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he’s been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything’s about to change.

This is a book about love, but about what it means to really be in love with a person and everything they are, not just the idea of what you want them to be.

This book is about grief, about how there is not one way to try and live after you’ve lost someone you thought would always be there.

This book is about the way we build a dream of what our future will be, and how we cope when it doesn’t quite come true.

A brilliantly paced intimate look at love and loss narrated by the instantly relatable and funny Henry. This is a story for anyone who wants to laugh and cry in equal measures and who wants to follow flawed human characters (who don’t always behave in likable ways) as they grow through their responses to adversity.
