The Sun is Also a Star

Reviewed by Melanie on May 8, 2017


It’s really difficult to write a review about this book without spoiling anything. When beginning the book, I was disheartened by the narrators. They were monotone and really didn’t grip me. After a couple of chapters, I began to fall in love with a story about young love. First love. True love.

I waited almost three months to download this book from the OverDrive app. I loved Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book as well. I was not disappointed.

The story follows Natasha and Daniel. Brought together by chance and circumstance on a day in New York City. An important day for both of them. The day will determine both of their futures. The book made me laugh, cry, and believe in things such as fate. Once you pick it up, be ready to spend the day finding out what comes next in this well written story.

Description 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? (less)
