The Sun Is Also a Star

Written by Nicola Yoon

Her father was arrested for drunk driving, so now her family is about to be deported back to Jamaica. Having grown up in New York City, Natasha has never known Jamaica and is looking for any reason to allow them to stay legally. She never expected to find love in the process. On his way to an entrance interview for Yale, Daniel is trying to live up to his family’s adamant expectations. When the two meet, they fall in love immediately. But, will fate keep them together or drive them apart?

Told in alternating points of view, each character is well developed and easy to relate to. The inclusion of science and fate is interestingly interwoven into the novel and brings to light a fun, romantic, realistic fiction. Fans of romance and realistic fiction will find this book impossible to put down. Due to complexity of story and some of the content, this book is best suited for Grades 8 and up or Ages 14 and up.
