Review : My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga


Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.

There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution: a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman) 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. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince. (From: Goodreads)


“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.

This story is gripping.  It makes you keep turning the pages.  It is actually a sweet book, pretty easy to read.  I especially like the cliff scene.  It looks very peaceful, all good.

This book doesn’t have many humor lines, nor does it have lots of fighting scenes.  It’s just all plain but not in a bad way, just doesn’t have many high or low plots.


I’d recommend this book to young readers.  Though this book is about depression and suicide, I strongly disagree people who have these kinds of situation to read this book because some parts will make you feel really depressed.

I give this book four out of five stars.
