Kirkus Reviews

Silvera packs a powerful emotional punch in this multilayered story …The conversational yet profound tone of the book highlights the author’s ear for the musicality of language and his ability to convey deep emotion through attention to its cadence and flow.


This book gave me way too many feelings. I’d go from laughing at a cute scene to crying at a sad scene in a matter of minutes. IT WAS LIKE EMOTIONAL WHIPLASH (in a good way!) – Kat O’Keeffe, 5 out of 5 stars

He is an amazing author, who can pull off unbearably funny at least as well as bittersweet and heartbreaking. He is definitely one of the most talented new voices in YA… History Is All You Left Me is a breathtaking novel about love and friendship, teaching that letting go of someone doesn’t always mean losing them. – Kai, 4 out of 5 stars

The grieving process takes on a life of its own– with some surprising turns towards the end.  First rate writing – a gem of a story!!! – Elyse, 5 out of 5 stars


I’ve read the ending over five times, and my thoughts have been consumed by this story. Honestly, I don’t think HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME will ever leave my mind… words cannot express how much I loved this book, and I think the majority of people could find comfort in reading HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME.
