Three cheers for Jandy Nelson whose I’ll Give You The Sun won the Printz award- the highest honor for a young adult work.
The Printz Committee said “(o)nce inseparable, twins Noah and Jude are torn apart by a family tragedy that transforms their intense love for each other into intense anger. Timelines twist and turn around each other in beautifully orchestrated stories of love and longing.”
I’ll Give You the Sun also received a Stonewall Book Award Honor as a book of exceptional merit relating to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience. Make that six cheers!
