Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Title: The Sun Is Also a Star
Author: Nicola Yoon
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?
There might be many different universes out there with different endings, but this universe for this story is my very favorite.
This book made me cry in the best and worst ways. I am so happy that I read this book because it was the cutest story ever.
I loved absolutely everything about this book and I honestly would not change a thing about it. The banter, chemistry, and relationship between Natasha and Daniel was literally perfect.
I loved the diversity of the characters and how they balanced each other so well. Each character had very specific quirks about them which I loved and really made you feel like you knew exactly the type of person they were and just understood them so well.
One thing that was really unique about this story was how there were multiple different points of views of people in the story that the characters would have a brief conversation with and you’d get this short backstory to really understand everyone in the story.
This book was so developed and intricate and you really felt like this one book was the whole world. To say the least, you need to read this story.
