Book Review: A World Without You by Beth Revis

worldBook Review: A World Without You by Beth Revis

When Bo’s girlfriend Sofia commits suicide, he is unable to come to terms with her loss. Instead, he believes that by learning to control time, he can somehow save her. The story gently unfolds as Bo learns more about himself, his family, and Sofia.

I listened to Revis talk about how this book helped her deal with something in her past. That is evident by the honesty in the characters she created. Loss is tragic, and the author managed to capture the pain and helplessness that survivors of suicide often feel, while still allowing for the joy of hope.

Quotes: None that I pulled out, but think that was because I read it too fast. Lots of beautiful word choice.

Recommended Grades: 9th and up
