I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson 

Publication Date: September 16th 2014

Goodreads summary:

  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. 

Why the Sun?

Jandy Nelson's writing is gorgeous. After reading the amazing The Sky is Everywhere I have been dying for her next book. I've been getting into a lot of contemporary lately and this sounds like a perfect read to fuel my addiction.


  1. Yes! I totally want to read this book! I still haven't read The Sky is Everywhere, but it's on my super long to-read list. :) I must get to it soon. Great pick!

  2. That's really cool. I didn't read Jandy Nelson's other book, but this sounds really beautiful. I will have to check it out! Thanks for sharing!
    My WoW.
