All the Bright Places: 22. Violet: 138 days to go Summary & Analysis

It’s Sunday night. Violet is in her bedroom, flipping through her and Finch’s notebook so she can write about the bookstore and the Purina Tower. Suddenly, she gets an idea: on a sticky note, she writes “lovely.” She tacks it to her bulletin board and then does the same with other words and phrases. Violet designates a section for “new nameless web magazine” and puts “Lit. Love. Life.” in that section. She’s not sure what she’s doing, but she sends a picture to Finch. He doesn’t write back.
Though Finch’s mental health may be starting to suffer, Violet’s is improving. As she takes Finch’s advice to heart and experiments with writing again, she begins to see that she can find happiness and purpose again. Starting a new web magazine could also allow her to help other people discover the power of the written word.
