was the twist That awful twist But her style was enjoyable and easy to read so I was eager to give her books another shot I was honestly ready to love The Sun Is Also a Star I even recently met Nicola Yoon at a book signing and she is so sweet and hilarious and I found out that this book is based on her own life as a Jamaican immigrant married to a Korean American I came away a little bit in love with her But I just couldn t love this book There were some good things about it but it s primarily for people who are far romantic than I am For those ready to be convinced that love at first sight really does exist or those who already believe it And I don t Call me cynical call me cold hearted but I don t believe in just knowing and love at first sight I just don t believe that s love Love is knowing someone s flaws habits and pet peeves having to deal with their grumbling after a bad day the weird uirks that only surface after several months of being together living with their morning

book very much But me I just rolled my eyes so much and never got a sense of the chemistry between Natasha and DanielThere were some things I enjoyed though The story alternates between Natasha and Daniel s perspectives but it is also peppered with the perspectives of random characters who come and go throughout the novel Some of these are really touching heartbreaking even I really liked the suggestion that everyone around us has a story they have their own lives and problems to deal with And I thought the immigration aspects were well done and realistic Natasha s whole life has been built in America but she s being forced to leave because of her father s mistake When one takes a closer look at immigration it s an inherently flawed and cruel system and really it s all about luck isn t it Where you happen to be born on the planet is all luck and chance As Natasha notes If people who were actually born here had to prove they were worthy enough to live in America this would be a

FREE READ The Sun Is Also a Star

When my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica Falling in Sun Is Also ePUB #9734 love with him won’t be my storyDaniel I’ve always been the good son the good student living up to my parents’ high expectations Never the poet Or the dreamer But whe This is a book about how the smallest gestures can form the biggest pictures how the smallest actions can change the course of a life How seeing a girl can change your life How falling in love with your secretary can change the course of someone s life forever How swerving in a car can get two teens together How calling a security officer can save her life It sort of tore my heart into a million piecesFuck okay I don t know how to explain how much I feel about this book You were expecting something More poetic she says Are you kidding Most poems are about sex She s skeptical Do you have actual data to back that up I wanna see some numbers Scientist I accuse Poet she retorts Let s start here Before I lose all my credibility yes this book is about instalove and yes I ended up absolutely loving the relationship I will say two things First that they don t really fall in love they see the possibility that they could And personally I think seeing the possibility of a future is a very real thing There s a Japanese phrase that I like koi no yokan It doesn t mean love at first sight It s closer to love at second sight It s the feeling when you meet someone that you re going to fall in love with them Maybe you don t love them right away but it s inevitable that you will And second it s written really well Their relationship is just so soft It s sweet in that way first love is and it s supportive in that way good love is And they call each other out on their shit Because you don t love me Daniel You re just looking for someone to save you Save yourself I will also fully admit that I didn t really connect with Natasha and Daniel s relationship in the first hundred pages not until I connected with their characters But holy shit towards the end There is a REASON I sobbed REAL TEARS while reading this book You know I m discerning about my romantic couples and I have chosen wellBut the romance is not all this book is about The real focus of the book instead is on the issues faced by immigrants On one hand we have Natasha a science girl complete icon and illegal immigrant from Jamaica who is being deported at the end of the day after her father has been picked up On the other hand we have Daniel a child of South Korean immigrants whose family wants him to become a doctor but who wants his own life as poet There s just oh my god there s so much here If people who were actually born here had to prove they were worthy enough to live in America this would be a much less populated country What is happening to Natasha is horrible and Yoon does not shy away from its horror Natasha has lived here in America her whole life She has been picked up due to a mistake made by her father It is not her fault she has been picked up It is not her fault she illegally immigrated in the first place She cannot change it And yet here she is being forced to uproot her whole life for another s mistake There is something so honest about how this is written about the way Natasha s pain is conveyed hereBut that s not all There is a discussion here about the social stigma against bad hair ie black hair and how that is perpetrated by black hair care places like the one owned by Daniel s parents There is honest discussion of the contrast between emotions and science whether you can uantify fate or put a box around love There is honest discussion of parent child relationships in many flavors of evil of fate of suicide And the characters Okay I m going to say something weird and reference high school English Natasha and Daniel form perfect narrative foils to each other They each have super distinct voices and personalities Also apparently this is an unpopular opinion what can I say stanning underrated lady characters is my brand but I love Natasha so much I might start crying The way she is written is just she conveys so many emotions I have felt in my past even though we re in totally different situations There s honestly a lot of talent in making the audience relate on such a personal level to a character I share no situation in common withListen I know I ve said a lot but I don t think I have said enough This book deeply affected me I don t think I have ever read a book crying so hard I couldn t turn pages I can tell you to please please read this even if you think you won t like it Literally this was my first note about this book me performing self sabotage by reading a romantic contemporary when I know I dislike romantic contemporary it s likely than you think do you remember what a fetus I was just a mere month ago thinking I would hate this book who was she The Sun Is Also a Star was such a fantastic read and I know it will stay with me forever I m getting chills just thinking about it and I have a feeling I always will I just remember finishing this book and wanting to cry because I love human beings and even when the world is unfair it gives us what we deserve in the endBlog Goodreads Twitter Youtube
