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?
Why I’m Excited:
- Diverse characters
- looks like a cute love story (I hope it is because one of the things I really enjoyed about her debut novel Everything, Everything was the falling in love part which was just SO DAMN CUTE
- deals with important issues
- Jupiter from Building Diverse Bookshelves wrote a great review
What books are you looking forward to?
p.s In case you didn’t know, Everything, Everything is also going to be a movie starring Amandla Stenberg!
