The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Inside cover blurb:

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?


This book has been getting a lot of praise heaped on it, so I was a little skeptical when I first picked it up. But it totally blew me away! Such relatable, well-written characters. The main narrative is interspersed with small chapters on peripheral characters and themes that both broke me heart and made me smile. A++++ (Everything, Everything is definitely on my list now.)

Plus: Beautiful and important story, especially in these times. Just go read this book!!!

Minus: Maybe it’s a little too perfect, if you’re that type of person. But I revel in the cheese factor, at least for this book.
