A unique love story that keeps readers on the edge of their seats, “The Sun Is Also A Star” by Nicola Yoon is anything but cliche.  

Young and eager American-Korean Daniel pursues humble and reserved Jamaican Natasha, and thus their love story begins.  Throughout the story, they both have scheduled appointments to get to while in New York City, but as they keep putting off their appointments, fate allows them to keep crossing paths.  Daniel’s feelings start out strong, but it takes Natasha a little while to get comfortable, mostly because she is facing deportation. Once their love connection is mutual, they go to their favorite hang out spot, meet each others’ families, and spend time alone.

Since this story continuously switches between narrators, the characters are well developed and understood by the reader. From the multiple points of view, the reader is able to know the thoughts of that character, and each time the narrator switches the reader can better understand the situation. With intense detail, this story is told in 346 pages and takes place over the course of only one day.

This novel is definitely one to read if you are interested in love, fate and friendship.  As this book has many high and low points, the ending makes up for it by restoring faith in the world.
