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?
Oh my goodness…. I have a monster case of the feels now!!!
After reading and loving “Everything, Everything” (my review is HERE),I just had to read Nicola Yoon’s other book. I was not disappointed. This was even better!
Nicola Yoon writes so beautifully. She told the story of a fateful day in New York of two teenagers meeting for the first time from both perspectives and did it so believably.
Interspersed with the stories of a cast of supporting characters, including family members (with dreams for themselves and their children), a depressed security guard and a lawyer, this novel is just so full of depth heart and emotion…. not to mention the science of dark matter and time travel (not plot points incidentally)
This explains how one moment can cause a butterfly effect in multiple lives, and how interconnected everybody really is.
Please read this. You won’t regret it….
now I’m off to remove my heart from my throat…. *gulp*
