And I'm using the "J" in WIJFR loosely, because I've read this book 3 times in the past few weeks. I just keep coming back to it. It's so beautiful and touching, funny and exciting. I couldn't put it down. (None of the times I've read it!)

ETA: Fixed the title. Sun. I'll give you the sun.

  • I keep hearing awesome things about this, and also comparisons to John Green. Is it depressing, like TFIOS?

    There are no kids with cancer. Does that help? LOL. It does deal with some difficult situations. 

    I keep typing and then deleting. I don't want to spoilerize anything, so I'll end with this: it's not depressing, no.

  • It's compared to John Green because that's the only way people know how to say that something is really good.

  • Ok, so I finished this book within the last five minutes and I'm still working on formulating words, but...it is STUNNING.  Like, maybe best book I've read this year.  It was so very well done.  Hats off to Jandy Nelson.
