Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.

There's only one problem: She's not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel's convinced she's found her solution--a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman), who's haunted by a family tragedy, is looking for a partner.

Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other's broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately,she must choose between wanting to die and trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together.

This is a gorgeously written and compulsively listenable novel about the transformative power of love, heralding the arrival of an extraordinary new voice in teen fiction, Jasmine Warga.

Depressingly Delightful

Aysel feels the dark sludge of depression daily and seeks a friend for the end of the world on a suicide partners' website. The story is honest, real and ultimately hopeful. There's depth to this one, tying together the theories of kinetic and potential energy through a school project, the pact, the future of the hero/heroine, and surrounding family. Well written in an introspective, detailed teen angst manner. Loved it and Rebecca Lowman is amazing.

Will "reread" this on April 7th.

I would definitely "read" this book again and again and again. Amazing characters, amazing story. As expected, the rain washed away all the dirt, but the suspension goes on and on. And finishing this today -April 4th- of all day just make this story comes to life, make me ask myself, where am I in this story? or hundreds of stories like this? I would definitely "read" the last chapter again on April 7th. For all Romans and Aysels.

Great Underlying Messages

This novel was a good quick listen and was easy to grasp. The two main characters are a little unlikable at first because they don't even like themselves and are both very depressed/negative. But ultimately their relationship helps them to see each other differently. The narration is some of the best I've heard on audible yet.

What a title!

I was originally drawn to this book by its title and was not disappointed. I got into it and just wanted to keep reading. Very relatable for me on multiple levels.

Great voices - written and performed

This is an amazing book only heightened by a great reading. The characters were very real and sadly familiar.

Seeking a Suicide Partner

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This was definitely a mood-matching book when I was stressed and looking for something angsty and slightly gloomy. I found Aysel to be super relatable when coming from less than awesome parents in a small town.

I wish it ended with a prologue.

Great story. Very emotional and intriguing, and it kept me wanting to finish it so I would know how these two young kids turned out. I wish we got a glimpse into the future to know if they both turn out okay but it still ended in a satisfactory way.

Great Read

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Even though I had a pretty good idea of how it would end something about it brought me to tears. The entire book felt raw and real and is something that I don't feel is represented in this way often. It was honestly slightly depressing but completely refreshing.
