Seventeen-year-old Tess Fowler has just dropped out of high school. She can barely function after learning of Jonah’s death. Jonah, the boy she’d traded banter with over texts and heartfelt e-mails.

Jonah, the first boy she'd told she loved and the first boy to say it back. Jonah, the boy whose suicide she never saw coming. Tess continues to write to Jonah, as a way of processing her grief and confusion. But for now she finds solace in perhaps the unlikeliest of ways: by helping her father with his new alternative funeral business, where his biggest client is . . . a prized racehorse?As Tess’s involvement in her father’s business grows, both find comfort in the clients they serve and in each other. But love, loss, and life are so much more complicated than Tess ever thought. Especially after she receives a message that turns her life upside down.

You guys, I freaking LOVED this book...And I know you'll love it, too! It's been one of Fall's most anticipated reads and I can definitely see why after I devoured it in nearly one sitting!

I cried, I laughed, I cried some more, and laughed some more. This book tackles suicide, grief and earth-shattering heartbreak in one of the most honest and raw ways I have come across in a book. Sometimes life just sucks! And sometimes, it's like the universe knows how much it is sucking for you and wants to throw more suck your way. We can crumble and succumb to the suck, we can give up and hide, or we can simply toss our problems into the river and try to start again. Meet Tess, she is broken, the boy she loved just took his own life and now she is trying to navigate through her grief.

I have to address Peter Bognanni's writing, it's absolutely perfect. He delivered this heart-wrenching yet beautiful tale flawlessly and also managed to craft such a strong female character. Tess is filled with wit, she is bold and she speaks her mind.

Things I'm Seeing Without You reads as a dark comedy. Yes, it sad, and if like me, you will cry. But it is also filled with great humour and so much heart. Just as much as it's about grief and heartbreak it's also about growing and second chances.

I loved every minute and every second of this book!
