Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of November 2016: Over the course of a single day in New York City, two teenagers who have nothing in common randomly meet and fall in love. Now I know that sounds absurdly cliché, but somehow in Nicola Yoon’s hands, it doesn’t read that way. Natasha is a practical young woman trying to keep her family from being deported in a matter of hours. Daniel is a poet at heart, but on this day he is dutifully making good on his familial commitment to a college interview. The two are inexplicably drawn to each other and somehow their paths keep converging. The novel is told in alternating points of view, and one of the special touches of Yoon’s book are the chapters narrated by people who are unintentionally part of Natasha and Daniel’s story, mirroring our almost spooky interconnectedness. The Sun is Also a Star is a thought-provoking story of possibility, fate, and the illogical beauty of love. --Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars So amazing that it brought tears to my eyes for literally no reason!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 8, 2018
The Sun Is Also a Star, is a touching story about two teenagers who deserve the chance to get to know each other, but risk having it ripped away from them before it’s even really begun. The novel takes place in New York City, where Natasha is on a mission to save her family from being deported back to Jamaica. On her journey she meets Daniel, who, due to a combination of bizarre and seemingly meant-to-be moments, notices her from afar and feels that he must get to know her. Over the course of their day, Daniel tries to undermine Natasha’s belief that both love and fate aren’t real, and that science explains everything.
It’s a beautiful read, consistently making me want to laugh and cry, and question my own opinions in regard to how the universe works.

Firstly, I’d like to mention that the cover art for this book is absolutely stunning. Upon finishing it, I understood its meaning immediately: that every second, different people, things and circumstances are all brought together, and they clash to create an outburst of consequences that have a huge impact on the rest of our lives. We make hundreds of decisions every single day, and each of these decisions leads to a different future where hundreds of more decisions lie. The outcome depends on which route we take. The cover and the novel, both encourage readers to think about everything they do with an open mind, and to be careful with how we effect other people’s journeys.

Leading on from that, I love how every event in the novel was interlinked with another, how every person we were introduced to either had a hand in how Daniel and Natasha’s lives played out, or vice-versa. It shows how even saying one kind (or rude) word to a stranger can influence them to make a huge life-changing decision.

The novel also dealt well with racism and how young people cope with having extremely prejudice parents. Daniel’s father’s disrespect towards Natasha and his embarrassment, I felt was written incredibly well and worked towards giving the characters more dimension. It’s realistic to write, not only about two characters who are both considered minorities in Twenty-First Century America, but who also don’t conform to the stereotypes placed on them. Daniel’s issues with his Korean parents wanting what’s best for him instead of what makes him happiest, and Natasha’s father wanting what’s best for himself instead of what’s best for his family, gives them common ground which many readers will be able to identify with. Yoon portrays realistic family dynamics in showing that they are complicated and hardly ever perfect.

Although I loved The Sun Is Also a Star, the reason I’m not giving it five stars, is that it was a little hard to get into. I think this was because the chapters started off very short and kept switching perspectives, however I understand that this was necessary to get the whole concept across. More into the middle I began to enjoy the short chapters because they gave us access to what each character was thinking in any particular moment. Something else that bothered me, was Natasha’s personality. As brutal as that sounds, she was a bit hard to like because of her pessimistic nature and how rude she was to Daniel at times, but as the story went on and he warmed her heart, she was much easier to read.

The ending was absolutely amazing – so amazing that it brought tears to my eyes for literally no reason! I wholeheartedly recommend this book as it really can change your entire viewpoint on the world and our day-to-day lives. 4 stars to Nicola Yoon’s, The Sun Is Also a Star. Brilliant.

"What a difference a day makes." ✨✨
The Sun is Also a Star is a novel by Nicola Yoon about destiny, love, hope, family and life. Natasha, a practical girl who was about to be deported back to Jamaica owing to the fact of her being an undocumented immigrant meets Daniel, a Korean boy living in America who is forced by his parents to become a doctor. Natasha makes all possible efforts to stay in America where she feels safe and happy. Their meeting is a sheer coincidence but they experience 'the moment'. However , Natasha lets it go. Why? Why is she sceptical of love? Why is she against dreaming? Why is Daniel forced to become a doctor? Will they meet again? All these simple questions have complicated and heart rendering answers. 🏘👨‍👨‍👧‍👦
✨✨
I really liked the narrative technique in the book. It is both personal and omniscient, the story goes back and forth to tell the readers about people and their histories. This book will make you believe in dreams, hope and destiny. Plus, it has become one of my favourite books and I had tears in my eyes after I finished reading it. Were they happy tears or was I sad? Grab the book and experience it yourself. Do let me know your thoughts if you've already read this one. 🙎🏾💇🏻‍♂️🎤🌞✨🛩
