I don't know if that's the same book...but has similar elements in the description!(less)

Update 3/30/17: Jandy Nelson says on Twitter, "Been asked a lot recently when my next novel will be out. So! Working hard on it! Sorry so slow and thank you for waiting/asking/caring!"

WHAT?! I need to read this! Everything Jandy Nelson writes is golden, perfect, and amazing. The Sky is Everywhere was great. I wish I had a little glass box I could put I'll Give You the Sun in, just so I could properly show it off. Or, better yet, a whole museum.
An Invisible Museum. Huh, huh? Get it? :D
Anyway, this writer is on my top 3 favorite authors list. Whatever she writes will be nothing short of spectacular.

Also: 2017?

Jandy Nelson,
If you let this book come out tomorrow, I'll give you th

It's November 2016. Waiting for an official release date is like...



UPDATE: I know that when it's released Jandy's book will be utter perfection, but 2017?!? I can't wait that long...



UPDATE #2: It's 2019 and still no book. But I have a good feeling about this year. 2019 is the year when Jandy releases this book - I can feel it!





UPDATE #3: It's 2020... and STILL no book.



But I'm full of blind optimism! Once Jandy finishes adapting the screenplay for The Sky is Everywhere, she WILL post an update on

I loved I'll Give You The Sun (5 stars) and hated The Sky Is Everywhere (1 star). Understandably I'm having very mixed feelings about this one.

CAN THIS PLEASE HAVE AN LGBTQ+ relationship? I feel like a trio of siblings (two boys and one girl) and a new girl shows up has some nice potential for a m/m or f/f or any other relationship...

EDIT 13/7/17:

jandy told me on twitter a few weeks ago the book isn't finished yet, she's writing on the script for the sky is everywhere movie too so it might still take a while that's why we don't have a release date yet ☝🏼️ thought y'all might want to know

We went to her signing/reading event in Seattle today (along with author Gayle Forman).

Both read dialogue excepts from their books, so I am so glad we made it to the event! They shared the story of how they came to meet, and shared some additional anecdotes which made it a great time for all In attendance.

After the reading and Q & A portion, we were
given the opportunity to have our books autographed and meet Jandy (and Gayle).

I recommend going to this event I'm your city.

Apparently people have been waiting for the release date for about four years. I just heard about this book so fortunately I didn’t have to wait that long. But... there’s no release date or cover. So, I guess I still have to wait. I loved I’ll give you the sun, that’s one of my favorite books ever.

UPDATE 27/03/2020

Jandy Nelson answered a few questions under one of her Facebook posts.
She said she is working right now on her new book.
She didn't mention a title, so it could be The Fall Boys or a new book:)(

Jandy Nelson, like her characters in I’ll Give You the Sun and The Sky is Everywhere, comes from a superstitious lot. She was tutored from a young age in the art of the four-leaf clover hunt; she knocks wood, throws salt, and carries charms in her pockets. Her critically-acclaimed, New York Times bestselling second novel, I’ll Give You the Sun, received the prestigious Printz Award, Bank Street's ...more
