Fraternal twins Jude and Noah Sweetwine couldn’t have been closer, or more different. Noah is a quiet, prolific artist, while Jude is a bold, sassy daredevil. When tragedy hits, their love for each other mutates into intense anger, and their old identities are displaced by unrecognizable selves. They each have their own story of loss, love, and longing to tell – Noah‘s at age 13, Jude’s at age 16. Their timelines twist and turn, and eventually intersect in an exquisite celebration of love, art, and redemption. Deeply mournful and radiantly joyful, this literary coming of age opus will rip open your heart, and then repair it with golden thread. The 2015 recipient of the Printz Award, this book deserves all the acclaim.
