Mini Book Reviews

The Sun is Also a Star (YA)

by Nicola Yoon

Neither Natasha nor Daniel is looking for their true love today. A string of random chances bring them together. But Natasha is being deported back to Jamaica tonight—will the random events continue, keeping them together, or will more chances tear them apart?

This book was beautifully written. I loved the points of view; the interspersed chapters about racial concerns, science, and history; and the interconnectedness of all of the seemingly minor characters who had an impact on everyone else’s lives. This is not an everything-comes-together-perfectly-and-they-all-live-happily-ever-after kind of book, but it is beautiful and hopeful, despite—or because of—moments of pain.
