The Sun is Also a Star

Natasha believes in science, in facts, in what is provable. Daniel is a poet and a dreamer. Can Daniel make Natasha believe in love at first sight? Can Natasha get Daniel to put his feet on the ground? Family pressures and expectations mount as they navigate each other’s story from Koreatown to Brooklyn.

This book was an interesting take on “star crossed lovers” and I enjoyed how every piece of the narrative interconnected down to the seemingly most minor characters. Each chapter is told from the point of view of a character or the narrator that adds interesting voice to story and one of my favorite parts of the book.

It is part travelogue, part science textbook and part sonnet. Nicola Yoon’s Coretta Scott King award winner The Sun is Also a Star will make you believe in love in an infinite universe of possibilities.

The Sun is Also a Star
