The Sun is Also a Star

Audience: All Teens

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?

Oh, how I loved The Sun is Also a Star. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed reading a teen book as much as I did this one. I must read Everything, Everything, even though I’ve heard it’s not as good. If you like reading about romance, well-written characters and life obstacles, read this one!
