9780062391124: My Heart and Other Black Holes

A brilliant and heartbreaking new novel for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park, about two strangers who want to die... and, in meeting each other, learn how to live.

I'm getting higher and higher and I feel the swing set creak.

'Be careful,' he says.

'Why?' I'm not thinking about being careful. I'm thinking about one last push, of letting go, of flying, and of falling.

'You aren't allowed to die without me,' he whispers.

Aysel and Roman are practically strangers, but they've been drawn into an unthinkable partnership. In a month's time, they plan to commit suicide - together.

Aysel knows why she wants to die: being the daughter of a murderer doesn't equal normal, well-adjusted teenager. But she can't figure out why handsome, popular Roman wants to end it all....and why he's even more determined than she is.

With the deadline getting closer, something starts to grow between Aysel and Roman - a feeling she never thought she would experience. It seems there might be something to live for, after all - but is Aysel in so deep she can't turn back?

Product Description:

Aysel, sixteen, wants to die. She's the school 'freak', the daughter of a murderer, and everyone - including Aysel herself - suspects she might turn out just like her no-good dad. She becomes obsessed with planning her own death, though she's not sure she has the courage to go through with it. And so she makes a pact with an unlikely boy with the same goal... but as she starts to feel for him in a way she thought she couldn't feel about anything, she begins to question everything she believed was true.

Ich versuche, mich nicht zu fragen, ob das nun richtig oder falsch ist. Mein Herz hämmert, und ich hoffe, das sein Herz genauso wild klopft. Ich weiß, dass die Menschen einander seit tausend Ewigkeiten küssen, aber jetzt, in diesem Augenblick, fühlt es sich an, als wäre das Küssen ein Geheimnis, das nur Roman und ich kennen.

Aysel will nicht mehr leben sie wartet nur noch auf den richtigen Zeitpunkt, sich für immer zu verabschieden. Als sie im Internet Roman kennenlernt, scheint er der perfekte Komplize für ihr Vorhaben zu sein. Und während die beiden ihren gemeinsamen Tod planen, spürt Aysel, wie sehr sich auf die Treffen mit Roman freut, wie hell und leicht ihr Herz sein kann. Und plötzlich ist der Gedanke, das alles könnte ein Ende haben, vollkommen unerträglich . Aysel beginnt zu kämpfen. Um ihr Leben. Um sein Leben. Und um ihre gemeinsame Liebe. Eine Geschichte über zwei, die den Tod suchen und die Liebe ihres Lebens finden Alive with intensity, gut-wrenching honesty, moments of humor, and-of course-heart.

But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel s convinced she s found her solution-Roman, a teenage boy 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.
