History is all you left me (HIAYLM) is a wonderful book. Every chapter was filled with twists and turns, some that could be predicted, others not.
I found this book emotionally depressing for the most part, as I really liked the storyline of Griffin and Theo, and found that I could only read a few chapters at a time before I would start crying or just be overcome with grief.
However, I pushed through, and I am glad I did because the actual story between Griffin and Theo + the supporting characters was great. HIAYLM shows how individuals can set aside their differences when someone close to them passes away, and the emotions that attach itself to a person.
Overall, I believe that this is an amazing book, and readers should read this but just make sure you are 1st in the right headspace (reach out to family/friends if it raises anything that should be spoken about to support networks) & 2nd have a lot of time to read this, so you can take breaks between chapters when it becomes too much.
I had mixed feelings about the main character of this story. Ultimately, he is realised as a deeply flawed character, making wrong choices. A very real character that can be empathised with, even if you shake your head at him. In the end, it was uplifting to watch him resolve and grow. I think this would be a great read for a teenage audience, but there's much to learn here for adults too.
