The New York Times Bestselling story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, Jenny Offill, Emma Straub, and Rainbow Rowell “We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story.” At first, Jude and her twin brother are NoahandJude; inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them. Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor. The early years are Noah’s to tell; the later years are Jude’s. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world. This radiant, award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.

5.0 The radiance and darkness of I'll Give You The Sun
My heart was tugged in two reading this book - joy and sorrow. Ecstasy and pain. Probably fitting given this story about twins. Jude and Noah, wholes who become broken, broken halves that become whole once more. And along that journey a story of secrets, lies, misunderstandings, jealousies, passions...

4.0 I just finished this book this morning.
I have a lot of good things to say, but I'll start off with the bad things because that's what's fresh in my mind and that's the type of person I am. This book could have possibly gotten a 4 1/2 star rating had Oscar just fucked off out of this book. I really hated the Jude/Oscar romance because ri...
