I'll Give You the Sun
by Jandy Nelson

"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." (Goodreads synopsis)

"This is how it all begins." (I'll Give You the Sun, Sentence 1, Page 1)

This book is AMAZING you all. Seriously, you need to run, not walk, to the shelves to grab this RIGHT NOW. There is a REASON this book was named the Michael L. Printz award winner. Oh the feels! I cried. I laughed. I swooned. I literally had to put the book down a few times and jump around the TeenScape like a berserk bunny rabbit in horror at the sheer awkwardness of a few scenes. In short, from an outsider's perspective, this book made me look like a loon. Read the book! Then come and talk to me about how crazy awesome it is.  ~Krystal
