I'll Give You the Sun

By Jandy Nelson


Twins, Jude and Noah, are incredibly close but also incredibly different. Noah is artistic while Jude is a daredevil and the self-imposed speaker for herself and Noah. However, three years passes and the once unbreakable bond between Noah and Jude is severed by a tragic accident. The twin’s story is told from alternating perspectives. Noah views his relationship with his sister as suffocating, relying on his art and the affections of the boy next door to escape. Jude, the charismatic rebel, takes a much different approach telling the twin’s story. A coming-of-age novel about family, love, and loss.
