This book centers around a private school in Vermont, the Ellingham Academy, where the wife and daughter of the school’s founder were kidnapped and murdered in the 30’s. The only clue was a riddle that was signed “Truly Devious”.
Flash forward to current day and we follow Stevie Bell. Stevie is obsessed with true crime and becomes a student at Ellingham Academy in hopes of solving the murders that took place all those years ago. One big problem is that Stevie thinks she sees a new riddle which is also signed by Truly Devious . . . how can that be?
This book reads really fast and I loved the cliff hanger/teaser at the end! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
Stella Grant has Cystic Fibrosis and has been in and out of hospitals most of her life. She has to stay away from anyone or anything that she could catch an infection from because she’s on a list for a lung transplant.
The only problem is that she meets Will Newman who also has Cystic Fibrosis. Will is just counting down the days until he turns 18 so that he can stop his treatments and go travel the world.
The connection between Will and Stella is undeniable but if they get too close physically it could jeopardize Stella’s chances of receiving her lung transplant.
This was such a good read! I didn’t know a lot about Cystic Fibrosis before reading this book but I now have a new found appreciation and compassion for those that suffer with this horrible disease. Be warned that tissues will be needed while reading this beautiful story.
We follow fraternal twins, Noah and Jude in I’ll Give You The Sun. They each have their own side of a story to tell throughout, and we get to see how their mistakes and choices shape each of them.
When I continue to think about a book days after finishing it, that book will most always get a 5 star rating from me. I’ll Give You The Sun did just that! This book is beautifully written and has definitely made it one of the top books I’ve read this year. It’s absolutely the best YA I believe I’ve ever read!
Highly recommend reading this book if you haven’t yet!!
