The sun is also a star by Nicola Yoon

This is the second novel from Nicola Yoon.

It is a love story between two teenagers who fall for each other during 12 intense hours together, while each is struggling with their own dilemma.


They are both of different culture and race and the odds are stacked against them.


Jamaican American Natasha Kingsley has 24 hours until her family of four is deported to their native Jamaica, and Korean American Daniel Bae wants to be a poet but feels forced to make his parents happy and attends a college interview at Yale. She's super logical and science-oriented, while he's a romantic at heart. Add to this the different culture and race and you will understand why it is such feel good read.


The story is beautifully written and Natasha and Daniel discover a “soul-mate “in each other. They are both outsiders from immigrant families, and have literally just met yet they communicate like two people who have known each other for years.

This is an enjoyable read which refers to timely issues like immigration, race, and gender with this overarching theme of existentialism and a person’s place in the world.


This book is generally written for the young adult market, however, it will bring a smile to your face and your heart will feel lighter for it, whatever your age.
