“Stars are important,” I say, laughing.
“Sure, but why not more poems about the sun? The sun is also a star, and it’s our most important one. That alone should be worth a poem or two.”

I love this book! It is now one of my new favorites. The writing is breath-taking and the story is mind blowing beautiful. I can’t recommend it enough. Plus, it is a diverse read that deals with issues of family and dreams and love. The story is basically about a Korean-American boy and a Jamaica girl who meet by chance but the girl have a problem her is family is being deported.
The book takes place all in a day but you feel like you have known these characters and their lives forever.
I have to chat about the point of view of the Universe because gosh this is so creative! Having the Universe view on all the characters and their backstories is so interesting. It will make you think and view people differently. This book is so raw and it doesn’t sugar-coat the ending. Life is messy but fate will always make you met the right people who will change your live in a small way or maybe a big way.
- Great plot
- Beautiful writing
- Powerful story
- It is a diverse read
This book will be one of my favorites of the year. I am still thinking about this book! I can’t get it out of mind. I highly recommend it and if you have already read it tell me your thoughts in the comments.
