Welcome to this edition of

What’s In My Ear!

Today’s submission is a little gem called

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

If you haven’t heard of this title, run out and grab it NOW!

Twins Jude and Noah have had some interesting experiences in their short lives

but the one thing constant in both of their lives is their need for each other and art.

Aside from learning about being true to yourself, death of loved ones, and art,

these kids experience life in bright, loud, in your face creative experiences that

make you realize you’re not alone.

It’s incredible. For the creative mind who sees color in everything.

This book glorifies you.

I’ll Give You The Sun could qualify as a Diversity Reading Challenge pick

because the main character is gay.

Read it.

Be true to yourself.

    1. I was reluctant to read it at first. But then I fell in love. You?
