Well we haven't written on here in an extremely long time! We're more active on the instagram, @our_bookish_blog (even though it's only me now T^T)! Anyway today's review is on one of my newest favorite book, I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.
This book will make your heart hurt. It's about a pair of twins, Noah and Jude. When they were 13, they were inseparable, calling themselves NoahandJude. Jude is a daredevil, cliff diving, and talks for both of them. Noah is quiet and antisocial and falling in love. At 16, something has happened to tear them apart in unimaginable ways. It also would seem as if they switched personalities. Now Jude is the quiet and antisocial one, while Noah is the one who wears the “flame retardant” as his 14 year old self called Jude’s personality.
It's told in alternating chapters, Noah telling the early years (13-14), and Jude narrates the later years (16 and onwards). They each tell half the story and "if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world" (Official Synopsis). This book has won many awards, and I can see why. I'll Give You The Sun will tear you into pieces and put you back together again. This book will change your perspective on family, the world, art, and most importantly, love. Everyone should read this heart wrenching book! I rate this 6/5 stars!
