Heather's May 2017 pick, 2 of 2

The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon

This is a great realistic teen fiction touching on hot issues of racism, discrimination, immigration and the validity of love. This novel is full of the charm of falling in love and great banter between characters that is very compelling and wonderfully romantic. The high stakes of teen romance is made more believable due to the confines of the story having to take place in one day. Good for fans of John Green or anyone looking for feasible teen romance.

— From Heather Weirich Roy

Description


Soon to be a major motion picture The #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award Finalist from the bestselling author of Everything, Everything (streaming now ) will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other

Natasha: I'm a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I'm definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won't be my story.

Daniel: I've always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents' high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store--for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

"Transcends the limits of YA as a human story about falling in love and seeking out our futures." --POPSUGAR.com
