Waiting on Wednesday: The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon!

From the author of Everything, Everything we have a new contemporary book! Hardback is expected on Nov. 1st while paperback will be on Nov. 3rd. 

Publication date: November 3rd, 2016
Publisher: Corgi Childrens

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?

We have only read Everything, Everything from Nicola. Hannah gave it 3/5 stars and I gave it 4.5/5. None of us are very into contemporary but I was surprised by how much I liked it, I thought it was a fluffy cute book. For Hannah it was okay but not so memorable hehe

I may give this book an opportunity if I feel like reading contemporary any time soon... I don't know, Goodreads is very torn with this book but most reviews range from 3-5 stars.

 What do you think? Are you into contemporary books? Do you like Nicola's books?

Are you excited about The Sun Is Also a Star?
