One Day in NYC (3)

THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by Nicola Yoon
Natasha and her family are about to be deported back to Jamaica after living in NYC illegally; Daniel was born in the USA, but his Korean-born parents want him to appreciate where they came from and what they sacrificed for him; when the two meet randomly one morning, they have an immediate connection, though their circumstances may stop a potential relationship before it starts. Told in alternating POVs with other random facts and characters woven in, this "love at first sight" novel is both sweet and sad and entertaining and interesting. It also shows different aspects of the modern immigrant experience. A solid YA for those who can buy into this kind of romance. (Delacorte, 2016)
