The Theory of Everythingby J.J. Johnson
Last year, Sarah's best friend Jamie died in a freak accident. Back then, everyone was sad; now they're just ready for Sarah to get over it and move on. But Sarah's not ready to move on. She can't stop reliving what happened, struggling with guilt, questioning the meaning of life, and missing her best friend. In a last-ditch effort to pull it together, Sarah befriends Jamie's twin brother Emmett, who may be the only other person who understands what she's lost. And when she gets a job working for the local eccentric who owns a Christmas tree farm, she finally begins to understand the threads that connect us all, the benefit of giving people a chance, and the power of love.

Growing up and experiencing loss are some of the hardest things a person can do. Sarah Jones has to experience both following the death of her best friend, Jamie. Sarah tries to make sense of the horrific accident she witnessed that took her best friend away from her, in the gym of her high school. This book follows her as she navigates personal relationships and normal life experiences after her world as completely changed. This is easily one of the best books I have ever read. It is one of those books you pick up and don’t put down until you finish it, and one that will make you cry and laugh. From the language, the characters, the message, the humorous graphs that mark each chapter, and even the cover- this book was extremely enjoyable. I would highly recommend it anyone.
