— Karen B.

Twins Noah and Jude used to be incredibly close until they weren’t. At 13, introverted Noah spends his time with his art and struggles with his growing feelings for a neighborhood boy while Jude is the opposite. Jude cliff dives, boldly flirts and has a bevy of friends. Fast forward to the twins at 16 and things have changed. Jude is at an arts high school and perfected the art of being invisible while Noah stopped making art; joined a sports team and a busy social life. Can they find their way back to each other? I’ll Give You the Sun is stunning and I was completely mesmerized reading it.  Jandy Nelson knows how to pull at the heartstrings and she does it well. A book to break your heart and put it back together.

Jude and her twin brother Noah are so close that its almost like they’re one person, NoahandJude. They are both supremely creative artistist but they start to grow apart as issues with family, friends, and first love start to change everything. The chapters alternate between Noah at age 13 as he fall sin love with the boy across the street and Jude 3 years later as she tries to put everything back together after a family tragedy. This book is crushingly beautiful and Nelson’s writing jumps off the page in full color, demanding to be read

Description


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 novel from the critically acclaimed author of "The Sky Is Everywhere" will leave you breathless and teary and laughing often all at once.
