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 door, while daredevil Jude 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 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, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.

This radiant novel from the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.

Twins Noah and Jude tell two sides of a story involving a tortured artist, a charming Brit, a puckish boy-next-door, a ghost (or two), and one twin’s acceptance into a prestigious art school. Secrets and regrets unravel as the characters plunge toward the redemptive finale. I’ll Give You the Sun pulls the reader under like a riptide, reminding one what it feels like to truly surrender to a book. -Lelia Nebeker, Pop Culture Nexus
