Book review: My heart and other black holes


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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been wanting to read this book for a long time. I have had it on my to read since I joined. I read this as part of the popsugar challenge. I absolutely loved this book . I listened to this as an audiobook and it was read by the same person who red Libby’s parts in dark places. I am glad Roman and Aysel were able to save each other. This book was reminiscent of thirteen reasons why. I definitely reccomend this to someone who has struggled with depression or currently is struggling with depression. I also enjoyed the fact that Aysel liked to do physics because it is uncommon for girls and this could help teenage girls go into the math and science fields.
