Things I’m Seeing Without You

Author: Peter Bognanni

Publication Date: October 3rd, 2017

Publisher: Dial Books

Synopsis: Fans of Thirteen Reasons Why and All the Bright Places will laugh and cry as they read this heartbreaking and life-affirming novel about love after the most profound loss.

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.

Funny, heartbreaking, hopeful, and wondrous, in the vein of Six Feet Under and I’ll Give You the SunThings I’m Seeing Without You is a beautiful examination of what it means to love someone, to lose someone, and to love again.

  1. I’ve been looking forward to this since I read an excerpt in a sampler; it takes me back to a place when I lost someone close to me and how I felt soon after.
    Crossing fingers! Thanks for the chance!

    • Kelly says:

      I’m sorry to hear about your loss – it can be a really difficult time after losing someone, and sometimes when you come across a book that has a main character who you can connect to due to similar circumstances, it can help.

  2. This one is on my TBR shelf, but I’m going to have to psych myself up to read it. The playlist looks wonderful, thank you for the new (to me) song recommendations!

  3. Brittany says:

    Thank you for sharing the playlist! I haven’t gotten to this book yet but I think I’ll wait for more reviews before fully deciding to read this one.

    Thanks for sharing!

      I’ve seen mixed reviews on this one but mostly positive. I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, either, but it’s definitely on my list. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to read it!

  4. Kristy Petree says:

    This sounds like such a good book… sad, but really good. Thanks for hosting!

  5. This has to be a tearjerker. It’s such a sad topic. I have read a few reviews that say how good it was. I hope you enjoy it, if you read it.
