    I just finished reading I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.

    Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next, while daredevil Jude cliff dives and wears red lipstick and does the talking for both of them.

    But three years later, at sixteen, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways…until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else-an even more unpredictable new force in her life.
    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.

    This book was fantastic and beautifully written. A must read. I loved loved loved this book. Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    I loved this book too! Normally I don’t like alternating first-person perspectives, but I thought it was done really well in this case. And as you said, such beautiful writing.
