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?
The Sun is also a Star is a wonderful read for anyone in my opinion. The writing format is very different, usually I wouldn’t like this kind of formatting and the love at first sight troupe. However, with this book, I love it! There is no other way to tell the story of this book. The poetry–ish writing is absolutely breathtaking. Some verses took my breath away and mad energy smile at the same time. They are so beautiful, a definite read for any dreamer or romance. I can’t wait to watch the movie. I do hope they do it justice. There are many quotes in this book that I adore.
Here is my favourite:
“Stars are important,” I say, laughing. “Sure, but why not more poems about the sun? The sun is also a star, and it’s out most important one. That alone should be worth a poem or two.”
