    Ein Mädchen lernt zu leben - von einem Jungen, der sterben will. Ist heute ein guter Tag zum Sterben?, fragt sich Finch, sechs Stockwerke über dem Abgrund auf einem Glockenturm, als er plötzlich bemerkt, dass er nicht allein ist. Neben ihm steht Violet, die offenbar über dasselbe nachdenkt wie er. Von da an beginnt für die beiden eine Reise, auf der sie wunderschöne wie traurige Dinge erleben und großartige sowie kleine Augenblicke - das Leben eben. So passiert es auch, dass Finch bei Violet er selbst sein kann - in verwegener, witziger und lebenslustiger Typ, nicht der Freak, für den alle ihn halten.
