History Is All You Left Me

by Adam SilveraGriffin is a sixteen-year-old boy suffering in the aftermath of the loss of his ex-boyfriend Theo, who has just died in a drowning accident in California. On top of grieving the death of his first love, Griffin is also struggling with worsening symptoms of his OCD, the deterioration of his friendship with another boy, Wade, and an inevitable confrontation with Jackson –  the boy who stole Theo away from him.

Chapters alternating between present day and “history” weave together beautifully to tell the story of Griffin and Theo’s beginning and end, and everything in between. Equal parts funny, romantic, heart-breaking and profound, you’ll be thinking about this book long after you’ve finished reading.
