In The Sun Is Also a Star, the lives of Natasha and Daniel intersect. Natasha is currently in a dilemma because her family might be deported back to Jamaica. She also likes to think realistically at almost all times so her being in New York City and coming across a boy who makes her swoon, otherwise known as Daniel, when her family is about to get deported back to Jamaica, causes her much internal conflict. Daniel, on the other hand, doesn’t act rebellious or go against his parent’s beliefs. He’s always been the model child. However, when he meets Natasha, all of that changes. She brings out a part of him he’s never explored before, as he does with her.
I would give this book four out of five stars. The book was a roller coaster ride of emotions. I enjoyed the part where Natasha portrays how Daniel is bringing her out of her close mindset by saying, “Using science against me is pretty smart” (Yoon 90). This line conveys how both characters are bettering each other without even knowing it. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a good work of romance. There are many heartfelt moments exchanged between the characters which will have readers swooning left and right.
