Noah is artistic, drawing all the time and falling in love with the charismatic boy next door.
Jude is a daredevil, wearing red lipstick and cliff-diving.
Once inextricably close, the twins are no longer talking to one another, the result of a wrecking ball that has changed them in different and dramatic ways.
Told in alternating voices, I’ll Give You the Sun gives Noah the early years to tell, and Jude the later years. Each twin only has half the story, but if they could find their way back to one another they might have a chance to put their world back together again.
I’ll Give You the Sun is Jandy Nelson’s second Young Adult novel, and is available to reserve at the Haliburton County Public Library.
