Printz Award Winner of a 2015 Stonewall Honor "This is the big one - the BLAZING story of once inseparable twins whose lives are torn apart by tragedy." Entertainment Weekly From the critically acclaimed author of The Sky Is Every where, a radiant novel that will leave you laughing and crying - all at once. For fans of John Green, Gayle Forman and Lauren Oliver. Jude and her twin Noah were incredibly close - until a tragedy drove them apart, and now they are barely speaking. Then Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy as well as a captivating new mentor, both of whom may just need her as much as she needs them. What the twins don't realize is that each of them has only half the story and if they can just find their way back to one another, they have a chance to remake their world.

In the same vein as Nelson's first novel, The Sky is Everywhere, this is an achingly beautiful story for fans of Rainbow Rowell, John Green and Gayle Foreman. Make sure you keep some tissues close by. * The Scotsman * Unusually structured and poetically written, I'll Give You the Sun is the story of life, loss and art as twins Noah and Jude each give their perspective on the deterioration of their once close relationship over the course of three years. This is an incredibly visual, quirky and imaginative tale; although the style may not be for everyone, the characters of Jude and Noah are so real and relatable, it is impossible to avoid being drawn into their story. A heartbreaking and heartwarming tale. * Inis Reading Guide * The book reads like a surreal painting, some gorgeous work of art you might sigh at in a museum, particularly in Noah's narratives, as he paints the world in his mind [...] If you love YA, then definitely pick up a copy of I'll Give You The Sun. Hell, grab a copy even if you don't like YA. You will not regret it. -- Laura Fulton * Maximum Pop! * Tough and teary with some challenging moments as the revelations come thick and fast for the grand finale, you'll probably end up reading this yourself (and loving every minute) - it's the sort of book teens will want to discuss for some time after reading. And then they'll probably want to talk about it some more. -- Damian Kelleher * Dad.info * Original, ambitious and full of richness and colour, from the author of The Sky Is Everywhere. -- Imogen Russell-Williams * Teens on Moon Lane * A rollercoaster story that will pick all readers up and sweep them along in a story that is romantic, tragic, funny and profound. * Love Reading 4 Kids * Sensual, heart-rending and quirky, this novel is powerfully and poetically told. * Armadillo Magazine * An immersive read about love, grief and sculpture, Nelson, who started out as a poet, writes beautifully. -- Sarah Webb * Irish Independent * This tense, moving and vivid YA novel should appeal to older teenagers who love to immerse themselves in character, language, art, and emotion. * The School Librarian * Each twin speaks in turn through this tale that keeps you wondering which one of them is the reliable narrator. -- Independent Bookshop Week supplement * The Guardian * Overall this was an amazing read which I can't recommend enough. -- Guardian Children's Book Site * Guardian Children's Book Site * This is young adult realism in Technicolour, saturated with light and punctuated with darkness [...] Nelson is producing the kind of YA books you don't have to be young to read. -- The Herald * The Herald * Nelson is definitely one to watch -- S Magazine * S Magazine * The words flowed like a poem. Everything was so easy to visualise, so real. The storyline is so crisp and different, so easy to read and not stop reading... -- The Guardian Online * The Guardian Online * I found I'll Give You the Sun to be one of the most captivating books I've read. -- The Guardian Online * The Guardian Online * If you love words and those who use them beautifully, this is your book of the year. -- Mountains of Instead * Mountains of Instead * Stands out in a young adult genre. Intense and wonderful, this is a book to savour. -- Absolutely Wimbledone * Absolutely Wimbledone * Touching and heartfelt tale of twins for fans of John Green. **** -- Heat Magazine * Heat Magazine * This is a long book but worth every second of the journey. -- LGBT YA * LGBT YA * Nelson really gets inside the teenage mindset, particularly the way her characters struggle with love and relationships. The characters and their voices are so vivid and imaginative, it's hard not to relate to them as if they were real, so despite my initial misgivings, I was still thinking about this a long time after I finished the last page. Highly recommended. -- The Book Bag * The Book Bag * I reckon it's the best I've read in a long time. Jandy Nelson manages to create an absorbing stor
