This achingly beautiful novel considers how to measure love when it has the power to both save and destroy.
Levon Grady and Samantha Vash are both students at an alternative high school for high-achieving but troubled teens. They have been chosen for a year-long project where they write their life stories and collect interviews from people who know them. The only rule is 100% confidentiality—they will share their work only with each other. What happens will transform their lives.
Told from the perspectives of Levon, Sam, and all the people who know them best, this is a love story infused with science and the exploration of identity. Love Is Both Wave and Particle looks at how love behaves in different situations, and how it can shed light on even the darkest heart.
Levon and Sam are tasked to write their stories as a year long project before they graduate in a school specially built for high achieving but troubled teens. Little did they know how this project will soon change their lives.
- I like the randomness of the story. Everything was synchronized despite the fact that the story was told in different perspectives, time and even places.I like the fact that this novel is about the awareness of mental health. It made me understand more into depth the reality of Depression, Asperger's Syndrome and even Bipolar Disorder.
- I am very sorry to tell you that this book didn't leave that much impact on me as much as I have expected. Don't get me wrong. This novel is wonderful in its own simple way but at the end of the day, I found myself questioning whether or not I was satisfied by how the story have gone and how it concluded.
Thank you so much for being here today!
Despite my 3 star rating, I do recommend this book for those who want to read about teens with mental health problems.
I hope to see you again soon. Till my next review!
