The Sun Is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon

5.0

EDIT, RE-READ 10/30/16-Just as good the second time around!

MOVE THIS BOOK TO THE TOP OF YOUR TBR LIST, RIGHT NOW.

Typically, I don't like it if book has the "boy meets girl" element, but if that is the ENTIRETY of the plot, I'm all for it, especially if it is done as well as Nicola Yoon has accomplished in The Sun is Also a Star. I won this ARC for free and already knew I'd be reading it, but hadn't been anticipating it. Y'ALL SHOULD BE ANTICIPATING THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT IS A RIDE FOR ONE ON THE FEELS EXPRESS.

Natasha was born in Jamaica and has been living illegally in NYC for the past 9 years. They're meant to be deported tonight.

Daniel is the son of Korean immigrants who expect him to live the "American Dream"-go to Yale, become a doctor, and marry a Korean girl.

When they (and you, the reader) stop and consider ALL THE THINGS that had to happen for these two cuties to meet, your mind will EXPLODE.

The story is captivating-winding in alternating POVs from Natasha and Daniel, as well as side characters and observations to show how connected and inevitable fate and love truly are. I was hooked in the first 30 pages. I'm now gonna go read [b:Everything, Everything|18692431|Everything, Everything|Nicola Yoon|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1450515891s/18692431.jpg|26540216] and *hope* to get over this book hangover.
