Staff Reviews


Jandy Nelson is arguably one of the better kept secrets of the young adult world and her second novel is an exceptional piece of work. The prose alone will keep you hooked from the first page. I wanted to finish it in a day, but gave myself time to read this novel over several days, just so I could savor the beautiful writing. Told from the alternating perspectives of twins Noah and Jude, each sibling tells their respective side of both their falling out and their family's disintegration from different time periods (Noah's viewpoint takes place in the past, Jude's the present), when eventually the two stories connect. This novel will break your heart and put it back together in a way you didn't expect. I'll Give You the Sun is a wonderful novel that is easily one of my favorite books of 2014.

Description


A New York Times bestseller - Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award - A Stonewall Honor Book

The radiant, award-winning story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, Becky Albertalli, and Adam Silvera

"Dazzling."--The New York Times Book Review
"A blazing prismatic explosion of color."--Entertainment Weekly

"We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story."

At first, Jude and her twin brother are NoahandJude; inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them.

Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor.

The early years are Noah's to tell; the later years are Jude's. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they'll have a chance to remake their world.

From the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere, this exhilarating novel will leave you breathless and teary and laughing--often all at once.
