Volume Twenty Eight in the Books that Matter Series
I'll Give You the Sun is a young adult novel of family, love, loss, and being true to the person you are. Noah tells part of the story when he and his sister start off as NoahandJude, thirteen year old twins who are half of a whole. Jude tells the other part when she and Noah are sixteen, no longer talking to one another, and have become totally different people than who they used to be.
Jandy Nelson writes a masterful tale told in alternating points of view set three years apart. This story pulls at the reader in the most emotional, heartrending ways. I'll Give You the Sun is a beautiful story told with intrigue and mystery through characters who are woven together with careful precision.
