Staff Reviews

Noah and Jude Sweetwine are estranged twins — best friends, soul mates, and rivals at the same time — who need to find their way back to each other. Told in alternating perspectives between Noah at thirteen and Jude at sixteen, this novel weaves together the secrets, dreams and heartaches of two extraordinary characters whose lives inspire and defeat them time and time again. With the same poignant charm found in Nelson's acclaimed debut The Sky is Everywhere, I'll Give You The Sun takes familiar stories about love and family and morphs them into an entirely new experience. Nelson captures the artistic spirit beautifully and intricately, and handles the realities of twinhood with accuracy and grace — a marvelous feat, as anyone who is a twin (including myself) can attest. Fans of magical realism, romance, familial relationships and deeply resonant stories will surely give this novel a spot on their favorites shelf. — Paige Mushaw

A must read for anyone who loved John Green's Fault in Our Stars. This novel is full of interesting, artsy, characters who struggle with their relationships until they finally put the pieces together and find a way back to each other. Jandy's writing is drenched in emotion and electricity. — Fran Tobia


A New York Times bestseller - Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award - A Stonewall Honor Book

The radiant, award-winning story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, Becky Albertalli, and Adam Silvera

"Dazzling."--The New York Times Book Review
"A blazing prismatic explosion of color."--Entertainment Weekly

"We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story."

At first, Jude and her twin brother are NoahandJude; inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them.

Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor.

The early years are Noah's to tell; the later years are Jude's. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they'll have a chance to remake their world.

From the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere, this exhilarating novel will leave you breathless and teary and laughing--often all at once.
