Release Date: January 17, 2017
Griffin's best friend, first boyfriend and favorite person ever is Theo, a boy who he thought was his endgame, but now he has to deliver a Eulogy for him. He feels like there is no one on the planet who knows what he's going through. But, he doesn't take into account Theo's current boyfriend, Jackson. When Theo was around, Griffin hated the very idea of Jackson, but now, he can't deny that getting to know someone who also loved Theo might help him deal with the pain of losing him.
History is All You Left Me is a raw and personal look at loss, but it also deals with the fact that every person you meet has a different idea about who you are. Silvera's writing is gorgeous and like with his previous book, More Happy Than Not, the structure of the book helps unveil the story to the reader. If you like realistic fiction with a voice you haven't heard before, you should meet Griffin and be prepared to have him break your heart when his story rings true.
