Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
meant to highlight an upcoming release we're excited for!
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Dial BYR (an imprint of Penguin)
Expected US Release Date: September 16, 2014
Jude and her brother, Noah, are incredibly close twins. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude surfs and cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and divisive ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as an unpredictable new mentor. The early years are Noah's story to tell. The later years are Jude's. What the twins don't realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.
This radiant, fully alive, sometimes very funny novel from the critically acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
I feel like I don't even have to justify why I am waiting for this book - perhaps read my review of Jandy Nelson's The Sky is Everywhere to know how much I love her. Or just search it to see how often it pops up on my blog and how much I absolutely love and adore it. Or check out all the brilliant words I quoted here (spoilers!!). And of course, this novel sounds so breathtakingly wonderful I can't even fathom what beauty will be within the pages. Is it selfish to hope she includes more poetry? Because yes. I want.
