Review: The Sun Is Also A Star is the first book I read from Nicola Yoon. Two teenagers, Natasha and Daniel, who have nothing in common, randomly meet and fall in love over a course of a day in New York. I adored this novel! It kind of reminded me of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, but more profound and diverse. The alternating narratives from Natasha and Daniel, were a delight to read and it was great seeing how different yet similar they were. Also peaking to each main character’s family dynamics felt so raw and real. The story maintained my interest throughout the whole novel. I also loved the way Nicola wrote the ending. I heard that they’ll be making this novel into a movie and I can’t wait to see it! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves young adult contemporary novels or is trying to find a book that is heartfelt.
