I'll Give You the Sun

Jandy Nelson

From the author of The Sky Is Everywhere, a radiant novel that will leave you laughing and crying – all at once. For fans of John Green, Gayle Forman and Lauren Oliver. Jude and her twin Noah were incredibly close – until a tragedy drove them apart, and now they are barely speaking. Then Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy as well as a captivating new mentor, both of whom may just need her as much as she needs them. What the twins don’t realize is that each of them has only half the story and if they can just find their way back to one another, they have a chance to remake their world.

This book just filled me with joy – it has been some time since I felt so strongly about characters in a book. They seemed real and well-rounded, I felt their pain and revelled in their joy. Having no interest in art I didn’t think I would connect to their artistic endeavours, but it was so well written I was drawn right in and wanted to buy a coffee table book of the pictures they described. I wanted to read it quickly but also didn’t want it to end. Loved it.

This book is amazing, it is very descriptive has a wonderful plot and leaves you wanting to read more. This book contains swearing so i would say it is suitable for children age 12+. Hope you find this helpful! :)
