The Sun Is Also A Star

by 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?

The Scoop: A smart, unforgettable love story with clock-ticking tension. This book. These characters. These feels! We want to hang out with Natasha and Daniel and belt out norebang karaoke, try dubu and talk about everything. This look at the web-like relationships in life is beautifully written and guaranteed to steal your heart.
