I'll Give You the Sun, by Jandy Nelson
Yesterday at Kirkus, I wrote about Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You the Sun:
Even better—which is saying something—is the depiction of the two of them as a unit. The sibling rivalry, the desire to throttle AND the need to protect, wanting to establish independence but also feeling the pain of emotional distance. Listed like that, those elements seem contradictory, but Nelson makes them not only work, but feel real and true and almost inevitable.
