“Would-Be Casanova Shakes Cute Girl’s Hand, Offers Her Home Loan with Reasonable Interest Rate.
I shook her hand. I’m wearing a suit and a tie and I shook her hand.
What am I? A banker?
Who meets a cute girl and shakes her hand?“
Nicola Yoon’s second novel The Sun Is Also a Star was such a beautifully written contemporary, I highly recommend it to those who read her first novel Everything, Everything and even those who haven’t had the pleasure yet. Read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
“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?”
