i'll give you the sun

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
September 16, 2014

From Goodreads:

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.

I am actually reading an e-galley of this one right now and it is amazing. It is heartbreaking and beautiful, and just what I wanted right now. It still qualifies for WoW though because I think there will be artwork in the finished book that I really want to experience as well. I would like to add A.S. King’s name to the above list of celebrity author names. There is so much magic in this book that it reads like Ask the Passengers.

Happy Reading!
