I’ll Give You The Sun

May 8th, 2018 - Posted in Library News -

sunby Jandy Nelson, 371 pages, Grades 8 and up

Noah and Jude are twins. In the old days when things were going well and they were a happy family, Noah and Jude were really close, but now they have grown apart, and Jude is wondering if she even knows her brother anymore.  Their story is told in the twins’ voices. Jude narrates her chapters from her 16-year-old self’s point of view, looking back on their childhood and events going on right now. Noah’s pages are narrated from his 13-year-old self’s point of view before their family experienced tragedy, before everything changed. Their stories come together in the end, but can they recover from this heartbreak, heal their family, and reconnect with one another?

If you enjoy books about siblings you might also enjoy: Speed of Life, by Carol Weston, Drums Girls and Dangerous Pie, by Jordan Sonnenblick.  Another great book about family problems is: Waiting for Normal, by Leslie Connor.
