SUN IS ALSO A STAR by Nicola Yoon
this book is just perfect. It’s about two teens (duh!) Natasha and daniel who met and fell in love in just a day. The majority of this story takes place in a 12-hour time span in new york city, trust me it’s very engaging. Speaking of Natasha and daniel they are exact opposites. While Natasha is a very logical nerd, daniel is a very dreamy poet and its really fun to read their very different outlook on life. And I really loved how the climax is not at all cliche. Must read
