Jandy Nelson's 'I'll Give You The Sun' is one of the latest books to be celebrated in the young adult fiction genre.
Two book reviews in a row but I promise these two novels could not be more different! After my review of Phillip K Dick's 'The Man in the High Castle' I'm turning my attention to a contemporary novel of a completely different genre, swapping post war speculative fiction for a quick coming of age read.
Lately I've been finding Young Adult fiction less and less appealing. There was a time that I'd never have considered leaving the genre behind but apparently I'm starting to firmly outgrow it. Given that Jandy Nelson's 'I'll Give You the Sun' has been getting rave reviews lately, I thought it worth a go to rekindle my love for youthful, carefree fiction. Sceptical though I was, after reading the whole thing in two days I was, quite clearly, sucked in.
