The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
I was not surprised that I really enjoyed The Sun is Also a Star. I’ve never been disappointed by anything by the author. I was surprised, however, at just how much I enjoyed it. I could barely put it down wanting to know what happened next. I cared so much about the characters. It’s definitely a heart in a blender sort of book. So incredibly emotional. Things are not wrapped up all pretty with a nice bow. Instead, things end up much more like they do in real life. Most of the story is told from the alternating points of view of the two main characters, but every so often there’s a narrative interjected to give explanation or a side character’s story or explain why things are or aren’t the way the main characters think they are. I absolutely loved that writing choice. Those added narratives really added to the story as a whole. I very highly recommend The Sun is Also a Star to teens and up.
