SynopsisWhy I'm Waiting
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. (Goodreads)
When I first picked up The Sky Is Everywhere, I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I did. In fact, I loved it so much that after I returned my library copy, I purchased my own copy because I knew there would be future rereads. It has become one of my favorite books ever, and I would even go so far as saying it's my favorite YA contemporary. I cannot wait to read Jandy Nelson's upcoming book, as I'm sure she won't disappoint.
