Review: Our Chemical Hearts

Our Chemical Hearts Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**I received an ARC from NetGalley**
Book Talk:
Henry is a regular guy with *mostly* regular friends. Never really been in love, never really done anything extraordinary. Then Grace walks into his English classroom, and turns his life completely upside down. What is he to do with this strange, broken, beautiful girl?

My Thoughts:
I really liked this book for high school students. It examines the impact of death and grief on high school students,, and the process we all go through when we experience loss. There are themes here of friendship, loss, love, and strength. The characters were funny and endearing. In fact, the peripheral characters made the story (I heart Murray and La). I would definitely recommend this one to older students.

My Recommendation:
4/5 stars
Grades 9+ (language, mild adult situations)
