I'll Give You the Sun

Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award 2015

The New York Times Bestselling story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, Nicola Yoon, Jonathan Tropper, 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.

"This is the big one-the blazing story of once inseparable twins whose lives are torn apart by tragedy." -Entertainment Weekly, "5 YA Novels to Watch Out For"

"Dazzling." -The New York Times Book Review

"Have you ever wanted to put a book in all of your friends' hands? This is that kind of book . . . Heartbreakingly honest." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Bold, even breathtaking. You get the sense [the] characters are bursting through the words, breaking free of normal metaphors and constructions, jubilantly trying to rise up from the prison of language . . . The book celebrates art's capacity to heal, but it also shows us how we excavate meaning from the art we cherish, and how we find reflections of ourselves within it. . . . I'll Give You the Sun is a dazzling mirror." -Lauren Oliver for the New York Times Book Review

"Both structurally virtuosic . . . and emotionally wrenching. That alone is a rare combination in literature, YA or otherwise. But then add in the characters . . . This book is a rebuttal to anyone suggesting YA, because it tells stories of young people, is somehow of lesser stuff. I'll Give You The Sun is literature. Full stop. In my opinion, it's not just the best YA book of the year, but one of the best books of the year." -Gayle Forman for Parade

"This book is many things at once, all of them engrossing. It's a book where teenagers think in almost indulgently poetic language while still sounding genuinely adolescent. It's two separate but equally intoxicating love stories. . . . Most of all, it's the mystery of what happened to tear Noah and Jude apart, and what-if anything-can bring them back together again." -NPR's Guide to 2014's Great Reads

"This book is about many things: grief, sexuality, creativity, bravery, identity, guilt. But mostly it's about love. Be prepared with more tissues than you needed for The Fault in Our Stars, a chunky notebook to scribble down all the quotes and a handful of witty responses when people ask why you're chuckling to yourself in the corner. Because this book will make you realise how beautiful words can be." -The Guardian

"Simply unforgettable. . . . If you're looking for a book that's deep and powerful and beautiful, look no further. You must read I'll Give You the Sun." -Lisa Parkin for the Huffington Post's "Top 12 Young Adult Books of 2014"

★ "Readers are meant to feel big things, and they will-Nelson's novel brims with emotion (grief, longing, and love in particular) as Noah, Jude, and the broken individuals in their lives find ways to heal."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ "A resplendent novel...Art and wonder fill each page."-School Library Journal, starred review

★ "Nelson's prose is replete with moments of stunning emotional clarity, and her characters are as irresistible to the reader as they are to each other . . . No matter how they hurt each other, the love among all the characters is huge here-huge enough to destroy, huge enough to forgive, and huge enough to put their broken world back together again." -BCCB, starred review

★ "In an electric style evoking the highly visual imaginations of the young narrators, Nelson captures the fraught, antagonistic, yet deeply loving relationship Jude and Noah share." -Booklist, starred review

★ "An intricate and absorbing work of art emerges from the det
Portrait
Jandy Nelson ist wie Noah und Jude in einem abergläubischen Haushalt aufgewachsen. Schon als kleines Mädchen wurde ihr beigebracht, wie man vierblättrige Kleeblätter aufstöbert; sie klopft auf Holz, wirft Salz über die Schulter und trägt Glücksbringer mit sich herum. Ihr Debüt Über mir der Himmel stand auf mehreren Bestenlisten und wurde ein grosser internationaler Erfolg. Ihr zweiter Roman Ich gebe dir die Sonne ist New York Times-Bestseller, die Filmrechte sind an Warner Brothers verkauft, er stand ebenfalls auf mehreren Bestenlisten und wurde mit zahlreichen Preisen ausgezeichnet, u. a. mit dem Printz Award. Derzeit lebt Jandy Nelson in Kalifornien - nicht weit von den Schauplätzen aus Über mir der Himmel und Ich gebe dir die Sonne -, wo sie sich ganz dem Schreiben widmet.
Jandy Nelson, like her characters in I'll Give You the Sun, comes from a superstitious lot. She was tutored from a young age in the art of the four-leaf clover hunt; she knocks wood, throws salt, and carries charms in her pockets. Her debut novel, The Sky Is Everywhere, was on multiple Best Books of the Year lists, was a YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults pick, earned numerous starred reviews, has been translated widely, and continues to enjoy great international success. Jandy has a BA from Cornell, an MFA in poetry from Brown, and another MFA in writing for children and young adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Currently a full-time writer, Jandy lives and writes in San Francisco, California-not far from the settings of The Sky Is Everywhere and I'll Give You the Sun.

  • This is how it all begins.

    With Zephyr and Fry-reigning neighborhood sociopaths-torpedoing after me and the whole forest floor shaking under my feet as I blast through air, trees, this white-hot panic.

    "You're going over, you pussy!" Fry shouts.

    Then Zephyr's on me, has one, both of my arms behind my back, and Fry's grabbed my sketchpad. I lunge for it but I'm armless, helpless. I try to wriggle out of Zephyr's grasp. Can't. Try to blink them into moths. No. They're still themselves: fifteen-foot-tall, tenth-grade asshats who toss living, breathing thirteen-year-old people like me over cliffs for kicks.

    Zephyr's got me in a headlock from behind and his chest's heaving into my back, my back into his chest. We're swimming in sweat. Fry starts leafing through the pad. "Whatcha been drawing, Bubble?" I imagine him getting run over by a truck. He holds up a page of sketches. "Zeph, look at all these naked dudes."

    The blood in my body stops moving.

    "They're not dudes. They're David," I get out, praying I won't sound like a gerbil, praying he won't turn to later drawings in the pad, drawings done today, when I was spying, drawings of them, rising out of the water, with their surfboards under arm, no wetsuits, no nothing, totally glistening, and, uh: holding hands. I might have taken some artistic license. So they're going to think . . . They're going to kill me even before they kill me is what they're going to do. The world starts somersaulting. I fling words at Fry: "You know? Michelangelo? Ever heard of him?" I'm not going to act like me. Act tough and you are tough, as Dad has said and said and said-like I'm some kind of broken umbrella.

    "Yeah, I've heard of him," Fry says out of the big bulgy mouth that clumps with the rest of his big bulgy features under the world's most massive forehead, making it very easy to mistake him for a hippopotamus. He rips the page out of the sketchpad. "Heard he was gay."

    He was-my mom wrote a whole book about it-not that Fry knows. He calls everyone gay when he's not calling them homo and pussy. And me: homo and pussy and Bubble.

    Zephyr laughs a dark demon laugh. It vibrates through me.

    Fry holds up the next sketch. More David. The bottom half of him. A study in detail. I go cold.

    They're both laughing now. It's echoing through the forest. It's coming out of birds.

    Again, I try to break free of the lock Zephyr has me in so I can snatch the pad out of Fry's hands, but it only tightens Zephyr's hold. Zephyr, who's freaking Thor. One of his arms is choked around my neck, the other braced across my torso like a seat belt. He's bare-chested, straight off the beach, and the heat of him is seeping through my T-shirt. His coconut suntan lotion's filling my nose, my whole head-the strong smell of the ocean too, like he's carrying it on his back . . . Zephyr dragging the tide along like a blanket behind him . . . That would be good, that would be it (PORTRAIT: The Boy Who Walked Off with the Sea)-but not now, Noah, so not the time to mind-paint this cretin. I snap back, taste the salt on my lips, remind myself I'm about to die-

    Zephyr's long seaweedy hair is wet and dripping down my neck and shoulders. I notice we're breathing in synch, heavy, bulky breaths. I try to unsynch with him. I try to unsynch with the law of gravity and float up. Can't do either. Can't do anything. The wind's whipping pieces of my drawings-mostly family portraits now-out of Fry's hands as he tears up one, then another. He rips one of Jude and me down the middle, cuts me right out of it.

    I watch myself blow away. I watch him getting closer and closer to the drawings that are going to get me murdered.

    My pulse is thundering in my ears.

    Then Zephyr says, "Don't rip 'em up, Fry. His sister says he's good." Because he likes Jude? They mostly all do now because she can surf harder than any of them, likes to jump off cliffs, and isn't afraid of anything, not even great white sharks or Dad. And

So erzählt, dass man denkt, mittendrin zu sein, würde so etwas gleichzeitig nicht und schon gerne erleben.

It is not easy for me to express my excitement. The story about Noah and Jude really moved me and I adore the siblings more than I can tell. It is a linguistic masterpiece, which will leave you delighted, shocked, incredibly sad and unbelievingly happy. If I had just one word to describe “I’ll give you the sun” it would be: per...

How can I express that this book is perfect? Poetic and inspired both in language and content it mainly is one thing: An Artwork (yes, capital A Artwork)!!! Here superstitions, oranges in pockets, secrets and portraits await you. It's a wonderful journey, you shouldn't miss for the world.
