I'll Give You the Sun

From the author of The Sky Is Every­where, a radiant novel that will leave you laughing and crying - all at once. For fans of John Green, Gayle Forman and Lauren Oliver.

What the twins don't realize is that each of them has only half the story and if they can just find their way back to one another, they have a chance to remake their world.

RATINGS & REVIEW

Unexpected yet enthralling.
I'll Give you the Sun is a refreshing and enchanting story that breaks away from the John Green dominated YA niche. As soon as I picked this book up I new I was in for something new. I found myself thinking about what Jude and Noah would think or say in different situations and their story became intrinsically linked with my day to day activities whilst reading the novel. With its graffitied pages I'll give you the Sun brings you on the charming journey of a pair of twins navigating between puberty, loss and abstract art. The charm of this book is fundamentally linked to its protagonists and I wholly encourage anyone to read their story if you are in search of a witty, devastating and enlightening tale.

Compelling!
This book captivated my interest with it's intriguing twists and turns that wove the characters together. The characters of both Noah and Jude were complex and likeable. Their love for each other triumphed in the end. Loved it!

love it! highly recommend
Such amazing words by Jandy Nelson. The story was told through the point of view of twin brother and sister Noel and Jude. A novel which was romantic and touching which shows the two sides of love; the good and bad. With a wonderful plot, characters you can't help fall for and incredible words such as "he was the kind of man who walks into a room and all the walls fall down"(directly quoted from the book). It is definitely a book which I highly recommend.

A work of art in it's own right
"Love does as it undoes. It goes after, with equal tenacity: joy and heartbreak." I'll Give You The Sun follows the tumultuous events of two siblings who know exactly what will make each other bleed or burst into song but remain unsure of which choice to make, more often than not choosing poorly in the heat of the moment whilst clouded with love, grief, doubt or something slightly more superficial. It has been some time since a story built me up and tore me down quite like this book did. I went careening through the pages, swept up in the colourful and visceral emotions of Noah and his view of the world. When his joy was sky high I was among the clouds beside him, when he hit the earth hard, I tasted the dirt. Nelson has expertly painted a masterpiece on every page; complimenting Noah's extroverted intensity with Jude's inner turmoil. While Noah is like a star imploding in on itself, Jude is like an astronaut exploring the skies without clear communication. Initially she seems more rational and controlled but as the story progresses it would seem that no character is ever one thing. The finished result is a novel rich with real, deeply flawed characters you are immediately drawn to. I was hooked within the first few pages and fought hard to space out my reading so that I could savour the beautiful raw imagery every sentence created. I'll Give You The Sun explores the power of impulsive actions, superstition and faith. My only criticism is that I was left wanting more, perhaps an extra chapter from Noah's perspective of how he felt and thought about the ending. Ultimately Noah and Jude are not the real artists here, Jandy Nelson is.

5 stars!
I cannot emphasise enough how deeply I felt these kids pain. They were dealing with issues that I have never had to go through, but felt perfect sympathy to, and I cried more than once. They were so close, practically the one soul, and they kept sabotaging each other the way you do with people you're that close to. The contrast between the chapters was also extraordinary. On the one hand you have Noah, telling the story from when they are 13/14 and before a unspecified family event (no spoilers!), and on the other hand you have Jude, 16 and recovering from the event. From the both sides you get an idea of what each is going through, and strangely, the even almost switches their personalities so that although you are seeing it from a different twins eyes, the protagonist is always a bit of an outsider and disbelieving of their twins social success. It's beautifully written, and the story is captivating. I read it in a single afternoon and almost flicked back to the start to begin again. 5 stars, and I'd probably even give up the flowers to spend more time with them.

Life and art and grief and love.
A book to dive into and experience the colour and movement of growing up and finding out who you really are. Jandy Nelson paints vividly with words as twins Noah and Jude navigate through devastating loss, soaring hopes and crushing truths.

Beautiful, broken characters
IGYTS (as I have decided to call it) was an enjoyable read that I think is best suited to teens age 13-17. it follows two very different main characters and many supporting, some deceased. My favourite part of the book was the characters. Noah is undoubtedly the strongest, with both his passion for art and sexuality shining through his wimpish exterior. I loved watching his romance with Brian unfold. However, I did think Oscar and Jude’s romance was a bit unnecessary and was just to even things up between Jude and Noah, though I am forever thankful for Oscar (you’ll see when you read the book). This book is 4 stars because the constantly changing perspective and ages was a bit hard to handle, I think it would have worked better if we had hear Noah’s half of the story, and the Jude’s. Aside from that, well written with beautiful, tantalising and broken characters. Definitely one to read!

The words to relate and enjoy!
I read this novel at the right time. First year of post-graduate education, no goals or prospects for what my future yet holds. I picked up this book with bright lemon edged pages, and had a neutral view of what to expect, because there's 'dragons & magic' fiction, then there is 'life in all its wild views' fiction. Last time I read a LIAIWV's fiction it made me feel things and cry awkwardly in my pajamas. But in this sensitive time in my life, the whimsical, slightly dark and quirky look on things with the twins, Jude and Noah, and sort of felt a connection with their alternative-kind of thinking and life struggles as I had. I was in the middle of hair-pulling stress level exams and read this in-between to procrastinate, and found an unlikely ease. I followed along and found myself grinning loopy and entrapping myself in the lives of the twins, especially Jude, the girl who gets in a half-baked state. The wording is fun and endearingly inspiring, would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the emotionally touching and quirky story.

Loved it
I got this book without knowing anything about it, and read the blurb and was like "ugh I don't think this will be my thing". And I'm really pleasantly, surprised. I really liked the story. I liked the writing style, it was creative, the inside of the book had nice 'artistic splashes', it had personality. And the storyline was nice too, it wasn't full on romance, it was simply a story of twins who have gone through hell, and how they cope with that, and find some love. It's complex, and written in split perspective a few years apart, so that was really clever too. I'm very pleased with the book, and enjoyed reading it. It's nice to be surprised.

Intriguing, for lovers of John Green
This book has a clever storyline with great character development. The story follows the lives of Noah and Jude, once inseparable twins, and how they grow apart. The book deals with key themes of love, trust and friendship, which are suitable for the mature younger reader, from 13 years up. In particular, the book deals with Noah's growing feelings for his friend Brian and the complexities of their attraction to one another, in a sensitive and thoughtful manner. The book therefore explores the issues of lack of social acceptance of same sex attraction and the restrictions upon being able to acknowledge who you love. The resolution is ultimately positive and empowering. The metaphors used in the book (linking to the story of Noah) are especially fun. Highly recommended to lovers of John Green.

Remake The World
I adored this book! 4.5/5 STARS! This book was sent to me for review through Dymocks Gold Booklover Program. Not only is Jandy Nelson writing awe worthy, inspiring and intricate, she pulls so many emotions out of her readers throughout Noah and Jude's story. I found the split views and split timelines very appropriate for this story. The reversal of Jude and Noah characters over the short amount of time was intriguing and as you discovered one layer or one event another would appear or a new mystery/point of intrigue would capture you. Jandy Nelson created two characters (Jude and Noah) who were each so intriguing and relatable each in their own ways. The majority if not all of the characters were so intrinsically intertwined with each other across both Jude and Noah's stories. To sum this book up simply: - Beautiful - Emotional - A story of love - And loss - And art and creativity - And betrayal - Discovering yourself - Being proud of who you are "Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you've been in before - you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall,the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to..."

heartbreaking and uplifting
I will admit, it wasn't love at first sight for me. When I received this novel I expected it to fall under the category of cliched young-love drama. I was happily mistaken. For me, this novel was not purely about love- while admittedly that was a major theme- but rather it displayed raw human emotion in a way that not many novels can. Noah and Jude are not perfect. Unlike most protagonists, they do not love unconditionally, they make mistakes, they envy and they hate. They possess all the qualities that truly make us human. You cannot help but love them as they struggle to make sense of the world around them- a world that they have so much trouble fitting in to. Noah and Jude are both so easy to relate to that you feel their heartbreak and their happiness. A fantastic read- recommended for lovers of John Green.

Amazing
This is a must read. An inspiring story about forgiveness and love. I loved the structure of the book. I can't recommend this book enough. After finishing this book I am now on a quest to read the other books by Jandy Nelson.
