Jandy Nelson, like her characters in I’ll Give You the Sun and The Sky Is Everywhere, comes from a superstitious lot. She was tutored from a young age in the art of the four-leaf clover hunt; she knocks wood, throws salt, and carries charms in her pockets. Her critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling second novel, I’ll Give You the Sun, received the prestigious Printz Award and is a Stonewall Honor Book. Both Sun and her debut novel, The Sky Is Everywhere, are YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults picks and on multiple best-of-the-year lists, have earned many starred reviews, and continue to enjoy international success. Currently a full-time writer, Jandy lives and writes in San Francisco, California—not far from the settings of her novels.
