The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun Is Also a Star
Blurb (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?

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Sun Is Also a Star “I didn't know you this morning, and now I don't remember not knowing you.”

This was a YA contemporary romance story, about a girl being deported.

Natasha was an okay character, and I didn’t blame her for being a bit wary of Daniel when he claimed to love her after only having known her a couple of hours.

The storyline in this was about Natasha and Daniel meeting by chance and spending the day together, the same day as Natasha was being deported to Jamaica for being undocumented in the US. Daniel very quickly professed his love for Natasha, and even called her ‘the one’ by the end of the book, which was a little too fast for me!

The ending to this was quite realistic, which I appreciated, and I liked the epilogue.
