"Years ago, I knew and loved a boy, and that boy was bipolar. I witnessed up-close the highs and lows, the Awake and the Asleep, and I saw his daily struggle with the world and with himself. The experience of knowing him—and losing him—was life-changing. I’d always wanted to write about it, but I wasn’t convinced I would ever be able to." -Jennifer Niven | Click here to read her full nerdy essay.

" I grew up in Indiana, and my attitude when I was there was very much like Violet’s; I just could not wait to get out. But I think in retrospect that it was a really lovely place to grow up in a lot of ways, and I‘m glad I had that experience. That aspect of the book is kind of my begrudging homage to the place I grew up. And all of the places Finch and Violet visit are real, except for the bookmobiles." -Jennifer Niven
