I'll Give You the Sun

Jandy Nelson
A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal. Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude 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 dramatic ways... until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else, an even more unpredictable new force in her life. 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.

As per usual, Jandy Nelson writes beautiful, literary YA novels. I'll admit I didn't love this as much as THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE, and the ending was a bit pat. But I could always use more Jandy Nelson in my reading, that's for sure.
