Nicola Yoon – The Sun Is Also A Star

The Sun Is Also A Star“I love the way she seems to feel things with her entire body. I wonder why a girl who is so obviously passionate is so adamantly against passion.”

Synopsis: 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: This book feeds my love for hopeless romantic books. Natasha & Daniel meet again & again, is it fate or what? Natasha wants everything logical, she doesn’t believe in love, passion or anything that can’t be scientifically proven. Daniel is the opposite, he is intent on convincing Natasha that they are meant to be & to make her fall in love with him. The book isn’t realistic but it’s fiction 😄 & it’s super cute. On a serious note, the book talks about Immigration. In the Acknowledgement, Nicola Yoon writes “Immigrating to a new country is an act of hope, bravery, and, sometimes, desperation. I’d like to say a big thankyou to all the people who’ve made the journeys to distant shores for whatever reason. May you find what you’re looking for. Always know that the country of your destination is better for having you in it.” It’s a great book & everyone should really read it!
