The Sun Is Also a Star

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton! 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?

The Sun Is Also a Star - Nicola Yoon Book Reviews (305)

A job very much well done.

The title relates to the story.4 star

I think this book is an amazing story about immigrants and how empowering people can be. I love the storyline but i only had one issue. It didn’t really explain how each character was related to each other. The family members were obviously known, but others? Not so much. Overall, an amazing novel, I would definitely recommend this book to others mainly because of it’s great quality and content. A job well done. 45

This book made me love love. And the ending was beautiful. I can’t wait for more books from this author 55


Hopeless Romantics should be in every book5 star

This book is a masterpiece. It is amazing and it will make you feel everything the character is feeling. The end ripped me apart and ruined my day but I am so attached. Can not wait for the screenplay version. Thank you Nicola Yoon for creating a this book in front of me, it is truly a blessing. 55


Amazing!5 star

Amazing! It was refreshing to this book. I’ve never read a book like this before. 55


Yes.5 star

I think this book is extra sharp. It hits a reality side, Especially if your family is from outside of the country. In the book Everything, Everything it’s hard to get sucked in because it’s not realistic .( in my personal opinion ). Unless you are facing a deadly disease. This book touched real life problems with immigrants and teenagers that don’t know their life ahead of them. It made everything way more passionate. It’s a must read. Ya know 🤷🏾‍♀️....if your a hopeless romantic . 💀 55


Beautifully written5 star

I don’t usually write reviews but I truly enjoyed reading this. I bought it because Everything Everything was so adorable I knew I liked the author’s style. This book surpassed my expectations. It’s funny, cute, clichê and not clichê at the same time. There’s sadness, joy and hope. She made me feel for these characters, the writing pace is fast so no time to get bored, with lots of fun facts in between that far from feeling like page feelers, they feel right. READ IT!!! 55



This book is one of my favorite books I’ve ever read. This book made want to be an author. It is amazing. I have no words to describe it. I loved it with every fiber of my being 55
