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)
Why I'm Waiting
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.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  8. Great pick! I absolutely adored The Sky Is Everywhere and actually bought a copy to keep after borrowing it from the library. If I'll Give You the Sun is half as good it will be a great read! Hope you get to read it soon :)

  9. One of you favourite books ever? Wow, high praise! I often have to be forced to pick up contemporary, but hearing what you have to say about the author's previous book makes me want to pick it up for sure. And the buzz for her next book has been great, too!

  10. I haven't read The Sky is Everywhere, but it sounds like I should give it a try. I'm not sure about this one. I have friends who are SO excited to read it, but I'm going to wait until I see some reviews before making up my mind. I hope you LOVE it!

  11. I loved The Sky is Everywhere too so I'm definitely reading this one. Great pick! ~Pam
