The Sun Is Also a Star (Large Print / Library Binding)
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

“Romeo and Juliet. Dash and Lily. Eleanor and Park. Natasha and Daniel are the next great couple!
While romantic poet Daniel wholeheartedly believes in the possibility of love at first sight, science-minded Natasha is much harder to convince. But time is not on their side, as Natasha and her family are set to be deported at the end of the single day in which this story takes place. Nicola Yoon delicately incorporates familial and culture issues into this page-turning, will-they-or-won’t-they modern romance.”
