Synopsis from 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?
What I Thought:
I was given an advanced copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
I loved Everything, Everything by this author, so as soon as I saw that I could review a copy of her new book I jumped on that so fast. The cover is so colourful and perfect for this story, and I’m definitely going to be getting a finished copy eventually for my shelves. I loved this book, and I can’t decide which one by her is my favourite.
The book takes place in the span of a day as Natasha counts down to getting deported. The chapters alternate between both of them, as well as a few other characters along the way. Most of those other characters only get one or two to themselves, but I liked how it tied things together more.
She meets Daniel and they start talking and it just goes from there. She’s skeptical around him at first, but as the day goes on they really start to connect. He tries to prove to her that she can fall in love with someone with a series of questions among other stuff, and since she likes experiments and believes in science over all, she agrees, although she thinks it won’t work. There’s a lot that seems to be going against them, but I actually liked how it ended.
If you’re a fan of this author or just want a really good and cute romance then you should read this.
