If there’s one thing I love about authors, it’s their ability to make the characters they create feel so incredibly real and vivid. In I’ll Give You the Sun, Jandy Nelson amazed me with the two very different point-of-views of Jude and Noah. As readers, multiple point-of-view stories can be tricky to follow along, as sometimes one character feels more realistic than the other. Even still, it’s even harder to imagine the supporting cast being just as fleshed out as the main characters. Yet, Nelson accomplishes all these things.
Have you ever wondered how she manages to pull this off? Do her characters feel just as real to her as they do to us? We are delighted to kick off this blog tour and welcome Jandy Nelson to Cuddlebuggery as she gives us a glimpse into her process for I’ll Give You the Sun!
