The #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award Finalist from the bestselling author of Everything, Everything will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other.
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?

"Beautifully crafted."--People Magazine
"A book that is very much about the many factors that affect falling in love, as much as it is about the very act itself . . . fans of Yoon’s first novel, Everything Everything, will find much to love—if not, more—in what is easily an even stronger follow up." —Entertainment Weekly
"Transcends the limits of YA as a human story about falling in love and seeking out our futures." —POPSUGAR.com

Hello Everyone!
I’m back with yet another book review. I had read Nicola Yoon’s Everything, Everything last month read the review here in case you haven’t read it. So, I wanted to read the rest of her books that she has out so far, which is this one. I know that this one was also made into a movie, which I will probably watch at some point.

I loved that this book takes place over the course of one day and all the little things that can add up to bigger moments in a person’s life. I also liked the fact that Nicola Yoon used the same back and forth style in this book as she did with her other book. I also especially liked that she added in the perspective/ mini history of smaller characters throughout the story.

If you haven’t read any of Nicola Yoon’s books I highly recommend that you do. I think they are well crafted and will make you fall in love with your characters quickly. If you hate YA novels or romances at least attempt to give one of these books a chance.

Let me know if you have read this or any of other Nicola’s Yoon’s novels. I hear that she has another one coming out soon. I hope to see you again in another post!
