On My Wishlist (77)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson.



I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Publication date: September 16th, 2014

Synopsis
Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude 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 dramatic ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. 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.


Goodreads page

I must admit that I don't really know all that much about this book, besides it being a contemporary rollercoaster ride about twins and it won the Michael L. Printz Award 2015. Basically, I've heard so many people raving about this book, I need to read it for myself. Maybe I should wait a while until the hype dies down, so my expectations aren't skyhigh, but I'm not sure I can manage.. So I think I'll just dive in, then :)
