Staff Reviews

This book is about an undocumented Jamaican immigrant Natasha, who meets an Asian boy Daniel, on the day of her imminent deportation. Through all the twists and turns of trying to save the life that she’s created in New York, Natasha meets Daniel - who believes that they are meant to be. I can’t even put words to how beautiful this book is. A look into the lives of teenagers with cultural struggles is given a flowing voice through the words of Nicola Yoon. A book to woo over the romantics and the cynics as Natasha and Daniel try to figure out if their meeting was fate or just another coincidence of the day.

— Zoe, TC Teen Advisory Board member

Natasha is a self-proclaimed realist who doesn't believe in love at first sight. Daniel is a hopeless romantic. When the two meet one day in New York City, Natasha is about to be deported to Jamaica. But Daniel is determined to make her fall in love with him... This is a romance novel like no other. The sheer beauty of Yoon's writing cuts to the heart. You will fall in love with the characters and become inspired to take risks. Natasha and Daniel are so real that it makes their love all the more believable. This book will shatter your heart, put it back together, and shatter it all over again. 

— Caitlin, TC Teen Advisory Board


Soon to be a major motion picture The #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award Finalist from the bestselling author of Everything, Everything (streaming now ) will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other

Natasha: 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?

"Beautifully crafted."--People Magazine

"A book that is very much about the many factors that affect falling in love, as much as it is about the very act itself . . . fans of Yoon's first novel, Everything Everything, will find much to love--if not, more--in what is easily an even stronger follow up." --Entertainment Weekly

"Transcends the limits of YA as a human story about falling in love and seeking out our futures."
