The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Upon seeing the trailer for this novel's film, I was intrigued. It didn't look like any ordinary love story and I immediately wanted to read the book. Nicola Yoon's The Sun Is Also A Star is a touching, bittersweet romance novel.

Natasha is a girl who doesn't believe in fate and destiny. But that all changes when she meets Daniel, a cute boy, on the crowded streets of New York City. Everything is going perfectly. Until she hears some news that changes the course of life forever: her family is getting deported back to Jamaica. Will she fight for Daniel? Or will she let the Universe take its course?

Honestly, the book made me want to cry. It was so heartbreaking yet beautiful and the way it was written was amazing. Hats off to Nicola Yoon for writing yet another novel that touched my heart. I highly recommend this novel to lovers of romance and non-fiction books. 

The Sun Is Also A Star is the epitome of the modern romance, showing the nice feelings of being in a relation and the bittersweet endings that can happen if you just believe in them hard enough.
I also highly recommend checking the movie out when it comes out in theaters!
