The Sun Is Also a Star Nicola Yoon Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award Finalist from the bestselling author of Everything, Everything will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other.

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? 


"Beautifully crafted."--People Magazine

"A book that is very much about the many factors that affect falling in love, as much as it is about the very act itself . . . fans of Yoon’s first novel, Everything Everything, will find much to love—if not, more—in what is easily an even stronger follow up." —Entertainment Weekly

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

    By posner.jonah
    This is the perfect love story with underlying personal problems such as family issues, socioeconomic status, and race. It’s filled with heartbreak and love and so much more. I love how they switched points of view so we could see the whole story. Definitely read this.

  • AMAZING!!!

    By kenyaroo
    I love love love this book. I watched the movie before I read the book. While the movie was good, the book is 10x better!!! The movie left out so much, and it changed some of the things that happened. Need less to say, the book did it better for me. I love the way you’re brought into each characters life and get a deeper understanding of them. I read this book within 4 days, about 150 pages a day. I just couldn’t get enough! I recommend this book to everyone because it is Truly Amazing!!

    I recommend this book because it makes you feel that anything is possible. You could meet someone and come to know more than you thought you could in a single day. And, when you meet again, it’s like seeing someone you’ve always known before, even if you haven’t talked in a long time. I liked this book a lot.

    I love this book Nicola Yoon did a wonderful job on all her books and the movies are wonderful but it also confuses you when you read the book first but this is one of my most liked books.

  • apple pie

    this book has a feeling about it. it feels like slightly tinted papers with jumbles and lines of words plastered on walls, and the feeling you get when you listen to that musician you worship sing, and like making up a song on your guitar that you felt compelled to pick up and play one night. it feels like the connection of sharing an experience with people and the bond you have with your best friend who you’ve known for years and when you finally manage to mix the color that’s in your head with that set of acrylic paints you got for your birthday that one year. it’s the person you pass on the street and never see again who you immediately label as a hopeless romantic and the old journal you found under your bed from when you were eight. it feels like nirvana and apple pie and hope. and i live for it.
  • Definitely a Must-Read!

    By GiLovesBooks
    An amazing story and a beautiful work of art. One of the best reads you could imagine. Heartfelt, adorable, fun, and endearing. Their story is absolutely extraordinary. I would 100% recommend you read, and if you are debating whether it is worth it, let me tell you, IT IS.

    This book had a wonderful change of events! I love the slight bit of education in it EX- the word meaning and hair. Romantic, intriguing, and so well written!
