My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Wanga

This was honestly a touching story. In My Heart and Other Black Holes, Aysel meets Roman through an online suicide help site. With the help of this site, Aysel and Roman meet and decide to become suicide partners. As time goes on they begin to be friends and each deal with their own tragedies. Aysel works hard to overcome the guilt left behind from her father’s crime and Roman deals with his sister’s death.

This book is sad. But it really is a worth while read. I like books like this one and All the Bright Places because they show you that even though love is great and whatever, when it comes right down to it a person can’t save you. Being in love doesn’t solve problems or take away guilt, it can help, but it isn’t a magical cure. I like that this book is hopeful and still real.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to make themselves cry as much as I do.
