The Sun Is Also a Star
Received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Cover image and summary 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?
I loved Everything, Everything when I read it earlier this year, and I was beyond thrilled to receive an ARC of Nicola Yoon’s newest book.
I loved The Sun Is Also a Star so much! In addition to the wonderful characters, Natasha and Daniel, I enjoyed the way their story was told. In addition to chapters narrated by each of the main characters, we also get chapters about other people involved in Natasha and Daniel’s stories, even if only tangentially. I love the way that broadened my view of Natasha and Daniel and what was going on in their lives.
I found the story somewhat bittersweet, and I enjoyed it so much. Nicola Yoon is totally an auto-buy author for me now!
