I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Jude and her twin Noah were incredibly close - until a tragedy drove them apart, and now they are barely speaking. Then Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy as well as a captivating new mentor, both of whom may just need her as much as she needs them. What the twins don't realize is that each of them has only half the story and if they can just find their way back to one another, they have a chance to remake their world. 

Split between dual narratives, Noah in the past at 13, Jude in the present at 16, you slowly piece together what drove them apart, the little things that escalated and how fate won't let them stay apart. The story and the writing was breathtaking in its passion, for art and poetry, for each other, to find that twin connection again, and of course for their loves.

I'm going to do something a little crazy and just stop. This is an absolutely beautiful book and you all need to read it. Right now. Nothing I can say will do it justice. Just go read it.
