Waiting on Wednesday, #61


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Expected publication: September 16, 2014
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers
A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell

Jude and her brother, Noah, are incredibly close twins. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude surfs and 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 divisive ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as an unpredictable new mentor. 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, fully alive, sometimes very funny novel from the critically acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
I first came across Jandy Nelson when I read her debut novel The Sky is Everywhere, which I absolutely loved! So when I saw this book at ALA, I knew I had to keep my eye on it. Well, the early reviews are looking good! And it's no secret I'll always in the mood for a good YA Contemporary novel, so I'll Give You the Sun is definitely on my list of must haves. 

Sooo, what book are you waiting on???
