I am madly in love with this YA fiction book! “THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR” by NICOLA YOON


This treasure of a book is pure magic.

It is listed as YA Grades 8 and up, and it certainly fits the bill for grown adults as well.

This book really made an impact on me, and I am still thinking about it, days after reading it.

It really portrays how much happens to us and around us and to others we interact with, in the span of one day.

How one brief interaction with a stranger can change their entire life.

The main characters are teenagers, Natasha and Daniel.

Natasha and her family are getting ready to be deported, and Daniel is struggling with what his parents want him to be and what he wants to do with his life.

Their lives touch for a brief random moment, and that brief random moment changes everything.

Nicola Yoon is an amazing and talented writer.

She writes in a way that truly draws you into the story.

I was torn between wanting to read faster and see what happens next, and slowing down to savor every moment.

I did not want this book to end.

And when it did end, I said, “WOW!”

The impact of this story.

It is only January of the new year, but I am positive that when I do my end of year review of my favorite books, this will still be on my top ten list.

I requested this book from Blogging For Books, and read and reviewed at my choosing.

Here is the Amazon link for purchase.
