Join MashReads and Adam Silvera for a night of food, friends and books, to chat about Adam Silvera's latest book History Is All You Left Me on Thursday, February 23 at 6:30pm EST, at Mashable HQ in New York City.
History Is All You Left Me follows Griffin, a very nerdy teen growing up in New York City. When Griffin's ex-boyfriend Theo accidentally drowns, his whole world is thrown into chaos. Though they were separated at the time of Theo's death, Griffin always saw himself reuniting with Theo and living happily ever after. Now, instead, Griffin finds himself grappling with loss of his first love and the grief that comes when someone dies far to young.
To make matters more complicated, Griffin feels that the only person who understands his pain is Jackson, Theo's boyfriend at the time of Theo's death. When Jackson comes to town for Theo's funeral, Jackson and Griffin strike up an unlikely friendship that may be just as destructive as it is therapeutic.
Thoughtful and devastating (but in the best way), History Is All You Left Me beautifully captures the complexities of grief, the heartbreak of lost love and what happens when the futures we've imagined for ourselves are no longer possible.
We hope you can join us in discussing this incredible book.
