Synopsis from Goodreads:
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?
Review of The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
It was the perfect read for last week. The Sun is Also a Star is a book that addresses cultural and racial diversity in the US. It addresses immigration issues and families in conflict. But it's also a book about dreams, about our commonalities, about love.
Like Yoon's first book, Everything, Everything, The Sun is Also a Star features a plot that heavily relies on insta-love.
If you haven't read this, I highly recommend it.
