This is my second book by Jandy Nelson, and it was simply okay.
Compared to The Sky is Everywhere, I’ll Give You The Sun was lacking. Maybe it was that I did not find the book relatable but I didn’t feel emotional towards this book.
Like Jandy’s other book, I’ll Give You The Sun is beautifully written. The portrayal of the characters and events were phenomenal. I especially enjoyed the overall theme.
The one massive problem I had was the jealousy between characters. The characters’ relationships were damaged to the extent where they all should’ve gone on Dr. Phil.
Overall, the story was really good but did not surpass Jandy’s previous books.
