i gave up practically the whole world for you

There should be a horn or gong or something to wake God. Because I’d like to have a word with him. Three words actually: WHAT THE FUCK?!

15 out of 52: I’ll give you the sun

Growing up reading Sweet Valley I always thought it would be really cool to have a twin, someone that was so connected to you. Sweet Valley wasn’t well-written enough to convey that connection the same way that Nelson is able to. I felt the angst, the urgency and the passion of their love and hate for each other, their first loves and their art.

The story unfolds with Noah telling the story from before the event and Jude telling the story from after the event. As the two stories collide you start to unravel why the event led to them not speak to each other. I enjoyed the way the story is entwined in the future and the past. The way words are unsaid and yet you feel for the characters and almost want to burst with them. You feel like you’re apart of the secret. This is definitely one of the best young adult fiction books I have read in a long time.

When people fall in love, they burst into flames.
