There is a reason ‘I’ll Give You The Sun’ by Jandy Nelson has won more awards than we can count. Awarded ‘Best Book of The Year’ by Publishers Weekly, New York Public Library, and Amazon, amongst others, this book has obviously affected countless readers, on top of ourselves here at MP!
Micaela got her hands on a free copy through our You Review section of the site in exchange for an honest review.

Have you read Jandy Nelson’s other book, ‘The Sky Is Everywhere’. If not, will you in future? Not yet! I will when my local library gets it in!!
Which twin did you identify most with? Jude – I understand her personality change and what it’s like to become scared of everything.
Did you find the split narrative between 2 different times confusing or clever? Very clever! I loved it!
Which of the characters apart from the twins was your favourite, and why? Oscar – I loved the mystery to begin with, but I enjoyed that he opened up and we got to hear of his past. It shows that know matter how hard times may be, we can get through them.
We think this book is full of beautiful quotes. Do you have a favourite? “I don’t want to imagine meadows, I want to run through them”
Rate it out of 10. 10!!!! I absolutely loved reading the book!
