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 12 hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won't be my story.
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?


Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, November 2016 - I was on maternity leave over the summer when I received an early copy of The Sun Is Also a Star. Thankfully my mom was around that day to watch the baby, because I couldn’t put it down. Not only is Nicola Yoon answering the call for more diversity in YA literature, she is also creating compelling, honest, and memorable characters in her fiction. The Sun Is Also a Star, which is a finalist for the National Book Award, is told from the alternating perspectives of two teenagers - one a Korean American boy who is on the "doctor tract" despite his proclivity for poetry; the other a Jamaican girl who is desperately trying to save her family from their imminent deportation. Over a single day, we watch how fate weaves its way into their lives. I recently got to listen to the audiobook, narrated by Bahni Turpin, Raymond Lee, and Dominic Hoffman - whose performances ensure Yoon’s work will soon become essential listening. —Katie, Audible Editor

It had me in tears...

I am 50 year old male surgeon and I have seen some things in my live. I am not easy to impress. But the final two words of the story - not counting "the end" - opened the gates and it had me in tears. I am not telling, it it was tears of joy or tears of pain. This story was a companion for the last couple of days on my commute and it took me to New York, Brooklyn, Jamaica and Korea. It made me happy and it made me sad. I took part in this one special day of a couple of people, not only the two main protagonists. It's not only the story, that captivated me, the narrators are perfectly casted and they projected images in my head that will accompany me for quite some time. One of the best audiobooks I ever listened to!

Wunderschöne Geschichte

Mir erging es nicht anders als den meisten anderen Hörern: Diese wunderbare Geschichte hat mich durch die letzten Tage begleitet und mich in Tränen aufgelöst zurück gelassen. Ich will das Ende auch nicht verraten, daher nur so viel: Die Geschichte ist furchtbar traurig und furchtbar schön und man spürt sie noch lange nachklingen. Sehr gute Sprecherauswahl. Für mich eines der schönsten Hörbücher bei Audible.
Definitely a must-read!
