"The Sun is Also a Star" is a really good book, its not as well written as "Everything Everything"
but it still is a wonderful experience. Some pros of this wonderful book are: Many details & Real life likely situation (expect the fall in love in a day thing). Nichola Yoon is wonderful writer I wish for books from her.

After first reading "Everything Everything", I was excited for this book. I hoped it would be just as fun, well-written, dramatic, and have a good plot. Well, the idea of the story is good and the problem is realistic, but I think the relationships between the characters moved too quickly. I was expecting a build up, but it happened all so fast. Not an ending that I like, but it's a good teen read. The author has done other pieces that are better. It's worth reading, but a bit predictable.

this book is amazing!! love it! same author as everything, everything and it's so good!! both of them are a must read definitely
"I think all the good parts of us are connected on some level. The part that shares the last double chocolate chip cookie or donates to charity or gives a dollar to a street musician or becomes a candy striper or cries at Apple commercials or says I love you or I forgive you. I think that's God. God is the connection of the very best parts of us." One of my fav quotes from the book

A fascinating story about love, family expectations, and fate. The teenage main characters
are dealing with some serious issues on the day they meet. This book had me laughing and crying; a quick read and sweet story.

After reading "Everything, Everything" I had high expectations. The book was okay. Just not believable that all that happened did so in a day. The ending is hard to believe also. Did like Daniel's outlook on like and glad that he lived was trying to live his own dream as well as Natasha trying to make the best of her situation.

Really enjoyed the story of Natasha and Daniel and their one day together. The chapters for each character made this easy to read. All the events that fit together made this interesting. It would be a really good movie!

Fact: Everything, Everything is everything.

Fact: The Sun is Also a Star is... not.

It's not bad, it's just not good either. The characters are fairly bland and their personalities are too largely influenced by their nationalities. It's great that Yoon tried to explore how different cultures are treated in America... but it ended up coming off as forced.

The ending was good though. It was really good.

Un libro excelente con una hermosa historia de vida, amor y desden.

One of the best young adults book I’ve read, this deals with the chance meeting of a Korean-American kid and an illegal immigrant from Jamaica. Is it fate or chance that brought Daniel, a senior who is expected to bring his parents’ American dream to reality, that of going to Yale and becoming a doctor, and Natasha, a senior who wants to be a data scientist together? It’s a very emotional day as Daniel and Natasha, form an instant bond, or at least Daniel does. What happens to them as Natasha tries (and fails) to figure out a way to keep them from being deported and Daniel comes to reject his parents’ dreams and make his life his own is wonderful, thought-provoking reading.

Observable Fact: You should never take long shots. Better to study the odds and take the probable shot. However, if the long shot is your only shot, then you have to take it.

Feb 14, 2017

Natasha is an undocumented Jamaican immigrant who has been in the United States since she was eight years old, and today is her last day in New York. Tonight, she and her family have to get on a plane and go back to Jamaica, all thanks to her father’s DUI. But Natasha is desperate to stay, to graduate high school, to go to college. Everything—her life, her future, almost all of her memories—is here. Daniel is the second son of hard-working South Korean immigrants. Today, he must put on his suit, cut his long hair, and put aside his dreams of being a poet. Today, he has an admissions interview for Yale University, where his parents expect him to study to become a doctor. When Natasha and Daniel’s paths cross, their romance is destined to end almost as soon as it begins. How much can you love in a single day?
