The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Sun is Also a Star was a pretty good book.
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 thought this book was written in a very interesting way. It was mainly written between two characters, Daniel and Natasha. There were also a few chapters where minor characters were telling the story. One of those sort of minor characters was the universe. It was a strange way to do it, but helped the book out.
This book was kind of like a Romeo and Juliet. It is a love tragedy that taks plac over a very short amount of time (instalove). It mad ethe day really slow, but interesting.
I liked how Natasha and Daniel were multicultural. Daniel was Korean, and Natasha was African American. This made the book seem more like Nicola Yoon.
Overall,, this is a good book, but I liked Everything Everything more.
