I'll Give You the Sun

We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story. At first, Jude and her twin brother Noah, are inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them. Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor. The early years are Noahs to tell; the later years are Judes. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, theyll have a chance to remake their world. This radiant, award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughingoften all at once. Printz Award Winner Stonewall Honor Book...

I'll Give You the Sun Reviews

  • Juliana Zapata

    Una historia maravillosa, perfectamente narrada, sin una sola frase de relleno, con personajes perfectamente construidos, con un ritmo que no cansa, con frases que llegan al corazón, con imágenes que aportan magia y con un mensaje que te deja una sonrisa en la cara.

    Este es uno de los pocos libros que he leído en los que me encariñé con todos los personajes principales, todos tan diferentes, tan imperfectos y tan reales; es imposible no amarlos, no vivir sus historias, no sufrir con sus errores y

    Me: *lies down on bed*

    Me: *holds book close to heart*

    Me: *curls up and whispers “this book” over and over again*

    What a perfect book to start 2018 with.

    I haven't written a complete review in over 3 months probably, simply because I wasn't feeling motivated enough. However, this book? This book's sheer awesomeness made me want to write a full one, because that's what it deserves! Ignore the fact that it'll be a crappy one; I can't write reviews anymore okay? Plus, I'm so in love with this book I c

    “It’s time for second chances. It’s time to remake the world.”


    The twins were basically inseparable; however, as the blurb states, tragedy hits, and they barely speak anymore. We see that clearly. Each one of them is conflicted and scared in their own way. Each of them has their own secrets, and slowly finding out all about them was just great. Seeing how the plot unraveled? Spectacular! At one point of the book I was questioning where this book was headed and then suddenly it all started coming together and things were revealed and my heart started breaking because I was feeling all the pain my babies Jude and Noah were feeling.

    “In one split second I saw everything I could be, everything I want to be. And all that I’m not.”


    The writing was weird. Yet beautiful. At first I was confused; not the type of confused where you don't understand anything, because as weird as it was, you understand everything clearly. But it was weird in the sense that I've rarely read books with that writing style. I can't explain further what weird actually means in that context, you just have to find out for yourself! Gosh, as weird as it was, I fell in love with it. It took me a bit to get used to it, but once I did, I was appreciating it a lot. My tiny problem with this book was the chapters. I think the entire 429 page book is made up of 6 chapters give and take. The chapters were humongous!! The chapters alternate between Jude and Noah, whereby Noah narrates at 13-13.5 years old and Jude narrated at age 16. And every single chapter ends in a cliffhanger and it would shift to the other twin and I'd have to wait 50+ pages to find out what happened next.

    “Or maybe a person is just made up of a lot of people,” I say. “Maybe we’re accumulating these new selves all the time.” Hauling them in as we make choices, good and bad, as we screw up, step up, lose our minds, find our minds, fall apart, fall in love, as we grieve, grow, retreat from the world, dive into the world, as we make things, as we break things.”


    I don't know you guys, I feel like I need to say more about it? Like there's so much depth to this book, depth which I personally find hard to portray justly with words. Such as the complex family dynamics of Jude and Noah's family, the relationships each of Jude and Noah have with their significant others, the problems each of them go through, the strength each of them find, the importance of art for them... so much more!! I think each and every one of us will appreciate it and relate to it differently and that's the beauty of it.

    “I didn’t know you could get buried in your own silence.”


    My friends, when you are in the mood for a good contemporary, let it be this book!

    Read this for my first ever 24-Hour Readathon and what a beautiful, wise decision it was. ...more

  • Liam

    what a truly beautiful book!!

    I CRIED ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT OVER HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS BOOK IS!

    I got so emotionally invested in this book that I became hooked and fell completely in love with it!

    When I first started reading it took a while to get into purely because of how unique the writing style is. But when you do get used to it you see just how amazingly well written this book is.

    One of my favourite things was the way the story was told from different point of views from years apart! It kept me gr

    SO FREAKIN GOOD. This just became one of my favorite books of the year, and one of my favorite contemporary novels of all time! It was funny and romantic and touching and so beautifully written! I loved it. I literally just finished it and I already want to reread it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Twins are fascinating.

    They can tell me they have magical abilities and can read each other’s minds and feel each other’s emotions and I’m totally going to believe them. To me, the idea of sharing the same DNA with someone else is extraordinary in itself.

    Jude and Noah are extremely close. They may not be alike, but they both dismiss each other’s differences to focus on what they do have in common: art. They both seek pleasure in the imagination and love with the entirety of their hearts. Too much

    NOT JUST 5 STARS, ALL OF THE STARS!!!

    This book was perfect and beautiful and everything.

    EDIT: 04/02/2015

    Quería editar este review porque aunque ya he hablado maravillas de este libro en mi canal, siento que también merece que diga aquí cuánto me gustó.

    I'll Give You the Sun es un libro muy hermoso y conmovedor, lleno de cosas que no me había encontrado en otros libros. Creo que la escritura de Jandy Nelson es la razón principal por la que este libro me pareció tan arrollador. Como he dicho ya e

    DNF after 116 pages.

    I feel like I'm probably going to get shot for this, considering the (currently) 4.30 rating and plethora of rave reviews on Goodreads...but I honestly really did not like this book. I made it to page 116 before I had to give up because I just couldn't take it anymore. I kept hoping that it would get better or that I was missing something that would somehow finally click — but it never did. This book is just  not for me .

    First of all, the chapters are so long. I don't think I
