“We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story.”
At first, Jude and her twin brother Noah, are inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them. Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor. The early years are Noah’s to tell; the later years are Jude’s. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world. This radiant, award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
This is the second book I’ve read of Jandy’s. I did like The Sky is Everywhere better but this one came pretty dang close!
I loved the back and forth past and present POVs between the siblings! Noah and Jude were both selfish, loveable, complex, and amazing! What I loved best about them was that they were both human and humans make mistakes, but you can also grow from your mistakes. So I really liked seeing those changes and character growth as the story unfolded.
The romances were both adorable too! And my goodness the writing! The writing was perfection! The only thing I would have wanted was an epilogue from Noah’s POV! I still need that epilogue!!!!!!!
