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?

I loved the writing style for this book. (although I listened to the audio book version so it seems silly to say). I felt the flow of the story and the different stories merged together really nicely. 
Like Natasha I am not usually a romantic but this book got me! I loved the clash of personalities and how Daniel and Natasha got on so great despite their differences. 

I love the idea that our lives effect everyone around us even if it is in a really small way and it makes the world feel a lot less lonely knowing that everyone else is going through stuff too.

I liked the main story line I thought it was cute and it gave me a little insight into different cultures and how coming from Jamaica or Korea or anywhere really can make you feel lost or different when like Daniel and Natasha discover it doesn't really mean anything.

I really loved the epilogue. I would have been happy with the book if it ended at the end but the epilogue tied everything all together nicely and sort of make sense of the world and helps me to believe in fate. 

I thought this was a nice positive book to have if your feeling a bit glum or you just want to take a break from the world and realise that everything will all work out!. 

Thanks For Reading
