Book Review By
Enrico Chico Books Expert, Mirdif City

Did the universe bring them together only to keep them apart?

This is Nicola Yoon’s second novel – her first was Everything, Everything, which was also a bestseller made into a movie.

The Sun is Also a Star follows Natasha and Daniel. Natasha is a Jamaican girl who lives in New York City with her family, and they are in threat of being deported. She’s a very analytical person who only believes in facts. She’s a pessimist. Daniel is a Korean American also living in NYC – he’s a good son whose parents have high expectations of him. He’s a dreamer and always prefers a positive outlook on life.

What will happen if their worlds collide?

The story takes place over the course of only one day – the day Natasha and Daniel fell in love. The day they need to survive their fate. It’s not only a romantic tale, it also covers a very pertinent topic: the issue of immigration in America. I love how Yoon manages to tackle a serious contemporary matter and weave a romantic story through it. I found the story very relatable and utterly charming. A great escape from reality.

I’m giving this lovely young adult novel 5 stars, and I think it is Yoon’s best book so far. I can’t wait for the movie coming out soon!
