Book CoverI'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Review by Nicolai Hughes, Teen Advisory Council

This book is an intriguing read from start to finish. Nelson has a
unique and real way of storytelling that keeps you hooked throughout. The plot of the novel
revolves around the complications of growing up, especially the need for adaptability in
relationships. The story revolves around the familial relationship between the two
sibling-protagonists, and the way their priorities shift away from each other as they get older.

An apple. A choice. A song. A kiss.

You will all be familiar with fairy tale retellings, but have you heard of an opera retelling? This is a retelling of the opera Turandot. Never heard of it? No worries! Not knowing the plot and ending ahead of time may just make this story even more exciting than it already is.
