I'll Give You the Sun; Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the SunI'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's difficult to know what to say about this: at times both voices are incredible, but when Jude's the voice that you want to hear, Noah's voice isn't as strong and vice-versa. If only only they'd talked, or listened, to each other.

As for plot, the Big Twist was no surprise but it was well done. And the pain that both Noah and Jude feel? Very, very real in different ways. Still, despite the writing and the voices, there was nothing new here.
