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?

My Review:

I received an eARC of The Sun Is Also A Star from the publiher via Net Galley in exchange with an honest review.

By only reading its prolouge, I realized that I was going to end up loving this book!!!

This book literally celebrates diversity in every aspect. It revived my faith in humanity, despite everything that is ongoing in the world right now.

With everything that was going on,and is still ongoing ,this diverse book restored bits of my shattered hope.

In its own way, the writing was very beautiful. No, not the kind where I stare at the beauty of the words, but the one where the metaphors,puns, and descriptions are seriously genious!

The interludes in the story were simply, magnificent. They gave the story a pretty, unique touch. If you’ve listened to Paramore’s Self-Intitled album, you will get the complete picture.

This book proves the theory that states that opposites attract. I mean, a person who believes in Fate vs one who doesn’t. Seriously, read this book. 

I fell in love with characters, story, and events. Nichola Yoon has just become one of my favorite authors, and I seriously can’t wait to see what she writes next.

I give it 5/5 stars.

  1. 5/5 stars was my rating too! The other POV chapters were so interesting; they definitely enhanced the story, I thought. And gosh, I loved Natasha and Daniel. I need to see them in a movie ASAP. I adored this book so much. Just need to find time to review it :/
