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 story follows two teenagers, Natasha Kingsley, a 17-year-old Jamaican immigrant who is on the brink of deportation and Daniel Bae, a 17-year-old Korean American who is on the brink of making his...
I liked this book marginally better than I did the author's first book, Everything, Everything. Mostly because I liked the chemistry between the two primary characters better. I listened to the audio version and it was the same narrator as the author's previous book - not enough time had passed betw...
Another book by Nicola Yoon that made me cry (well, I did not really cry unlike in Everything Everything where I was almost sobbing!). I listened to it as an audiobook on my way to work every day and it was a great experience. This book is about (impossible) love, but for me, it was more about im...
