The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
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?
Once again Nicola Yoon draws me into the life of yet another teen. I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read that kept my attention. The main character, Natasha is Jamaican born. She is on the verge of being deported from America, the only country she remembers, back to Jamaica tonight. The story gets more interesting when Natasha meets Daniel and has to battle with her heart and head. Although she enjoys spending time with him she knows that she does not have much time to contribute to a relationship that is going nowhere.
The way the book reads you will read from the character’s point of view. The most interesting part is that you will not only read from Natasha and Daniel’s point of view but you will also read from other character’s points of view.
I gave this book 4 stars on good reads. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick source of entertainment.
