There's not enough words for me to describe this book! It was enticing, thrilling, and beautiful - everything you would expect from an Adam Silvera book. The characters were so well-developed, for they were all so realistic and lively and just an overall joy to read about! History Is All You Left Me follows a boy named Griffin who just lost the love of his life in a tragic accident, and the only other person who understands his grief, is Jackson, the one person he doesn't want to associate himself with. It was so interesting following Griffin's downward spiral, yet his recovery lies in confronting his past and determining his future.
