With death comes the inevitable attachment to desperation and regret, but for Griffin, these emotions are just the beginning of an unraveling journey after the death of his first love. On a hunt to find closure after his ex-boyfriend Theo’s drowning, Griffin explores the unchartered waters of life without him in New York City—a city filled with countless memories of shared love.
Best friends turned lovers Theo and Griffin spent their adolescent years discovering who they are and building history together, spending every moment cherishing each other’s passions and interests. But when Theo leaves New York to attend college in California on an early admission acceptance, Griffin’s world begins to crumble. Theo had been exploring life in California with his new boyfriend and had begun to break away from his old history with Griffin, and his death is a tragic twist in a story about self-discovery, strengths and friendships.
Following his bestselling and critically acclaimed debut, More Happy Than Not, Adam Silvera delivers another twisty novel about self-exploration, adolescent relationships and the bond between first loves. History Is All You Left Me is a tale for today’s youth—one that embraces the essence of time and love.
