Quick Review : The Sun Is Also A Star

By Nicola Yoon.
Grade A+

The Blurb:

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?

My Opinion:

This book amazed me.
I loved Nicola Yoon’s Everything Evrything but I loved The Sun is Also A Star more.
A simple story about two different types of immigrants in US.
The book brings out the harsh reality of not just how the undocumented immigrants face problems there but also about how decisions of one person can have unimaginable effects on people around them.
I loved the cynical, science loving, non-believer in love character of Natasha and how Daniel strives in the entire book to make her a believer.

I just had one problem. I couldn’t believe the whole book happens in a single day! They do too many things to logically think it would fit in the said timeline!

Detailed Review soon…. for now -> DO GIVE IT A TRY!


  1. This sounds great, I’ll definitely add it to my reading list.
    I don’t think I’ve read anything by Nicola Yoon before,so it’ll be good to check out a new author.

  2. Hi Bhairavee!! I found your website from Becca from Jovers’s site.
    I like your layout of your website. I love to read too and I actually read this book like a week ago as well! I liked how it was about a relationship with two people from different cultures. You should read the author’s first book, “Everything Everything”. i liked that one too. It was a quick read as well. I think the author is Jamaican and Japanese too. 🙂

    I’m 23 as well and just graduated from college. I’m working full time too. 😀

    • Yup I have read Everything Everything some time last year. I liked it too!
      Thanks for the visit and do keep visiting!
