3 out of 5

Nicola Yoon is definitely a teen favorite. Not only have both of her books earned a spot in the Teens’ Top Ten nominees, her debut novel, Everything, Everything made the Top Ten list last year. While I have enjoyed both books, they are extremely predictable and way too convenient for my tastes. I did enjoy Everything, Everything a little more because Yoon’s voice was new and different. The Sun is Also a Star is told both in the perspective of Nastasha and Daniel, but also a narrator. I loved this additional voice. He provided character backgrounds, personal thoughts and little snippets of history. Did you know that Koreans own the market for black hair care products? Not me! I listened to the audio of this book (and Everything, Everything) and because of the three “voices” I highly recommend it.
