Staff Reviews

Told over the course of one day, see Natasha and Daniel fall in love when they meet while tackling issues that'll change their lives; a college interview he isn't sure he wants, and saving her family's right to stay in the USA. Along the way, you'll catch glimpses of the strangers' lives around them and realize how all our little actions can shape another's world. Cinematic and gripping until the very last page!


— From Kids' Picks

Natasha's family immigrated to New York illegall from Jamaica. Daniel's family immigrated legally from South Korea. Natasha likes science, Daniel likes poetry. Natasha doesn't believe in love, but Daniel believes in it more than anything. They meet by chance on the most important day of Natasha's life: she's about to be deported. Nominated for the National Book Award in 2016, this topical book packs a punch. Natasha's plight is a reality people face every day. I was also completely swept into her relationship with Daniel. If you're looking for quality contemporary YA, you won't be disappointed.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller
A National Book Award Finalist
A 2017 Michael L. Printz Honor Book

The dazzling new novel from Nicola Yoon, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything (in theaters May 19 2017 ),
will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other

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."
