Book Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven - Reviewed by Jess (30 Mar 2020)
I am not a big contemporary reader at all, however something made me pick this one up and I'm really glad I did. The emotion and strong bonds that form throughout the novel are really something that should be praised and I personally believe it does a great job at representing mental health issues in teenagers, and displays the vital fact that it's not just teenage girls who suffer strong mental health issues, which some may believe. As someone with mental health issues that have been around since I was in high school, such as the age of the characters in this novel, I personally feel it portrayed these problems and the mental state people are often in, very well. I was able to relate a lot with the characters and I think this is a vital, yet sometimes difficult thing for the author's to accomplish. There should definitely be trigger warnings for mental health issues, depression and the dark places and choices people can make as a result. I think Jennifer handled the issues in this novel very well and I am not surprised it has now been made into a film; I think it should be a read anyone in their later teens, as well as parents and carers, should read.
Jennifer Niven is the author of two narrative non-fiction books, The Ice Master and Ada Blackjack; a high school memoir,The Aqua Net Diaries; and four historical novels for adults: Velva Jean Learns to Drive (based on her Emmy Award-winning film of the same name), Velva Jean Learns to Fly, Becoming Clementine, and the forthcoming American Blonde.
