I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
Release Date: September 16th, 2014
Published by Dial Books for Young Readers
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary
A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell
Jude and her brother, Noah, are incredibly close twins. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude surfs and cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and divisive ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as an unpredictable new mentor. The early years are Noah’s story to tell. The later years are Jude’s. What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.
This radiant, fully alive, sometimes very funny novel from the critically acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
Why I Can’t Wait:
I can’t wait to read this book because a big theme is family, which I love to see in Young Adult novels. I’m interested in knowing what the whole story is and why each of them only knew half. I’m excited to see the relationships between Noah and the boy next door as well as Jude and the boy she meets. I like how the story will be told from two different perspectives at two different times in the twins’ lives.
