My Review of The Sun is Also a Star
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Nicola Yoon’s young adult novel The Sun Is Also a Star is a unique twist on a love story that teens are sure to embrace. The things that make this novel so unique are the multicultural characters and the alternating points of view that relay the story of Natasha and Daniel’s chance meeting on one fateful day in their lives.
The story takes place in one day, but that is all the time needed for Daniel and Natasha to form a lifetime bond as they grow to love each other in the midst of a myriad of obstacles and life changes that are happening simultaneously. Other characters pop in and out of the story through the changing points of view, and they serve to give the reader a different perspective of what it happening with Daniel and Natasha.
I have no doubt that this novel will be popular with a young adult audience. It has plenty of uncommon elements that keep the story fresh and unexpected. And, the characters are well-developed and relatable. Note that the language in the book would give it a PG-13 rating in my opinion, so I would recommend it only for older teens.
