The anit-love story -- at least as we usually think about it. Henry Page is ready to fall in love, and when he meets Grace Town, he finally gets his wish. Which leads me immediately to the advice, "Be careful what you wish for."  Our Chemical Hearts is a beautiful and heart-breaking story of parents, siblings, friends, and love in all its many wonderous/disastrous forms.

Hands down my favorite author of all time! This series asks the question, "What would the world look like if we could hear the unfiltered thoughts of everyone around us?" Patrick Ness wows readers with an intense and attention grabbing story all the while asking big questions about what it means to be a man, to be human, to love, and to hate. Amazing!
