The Sun Is Also a Star

The Sun Is Also a Star - Nicola Yoon 3.5 stars

This book gave me two points of view that I've never seen before. One of the main characters is a boy who's parents came from Korea. He's second-generation. Since he grew up in America, he has some disconnect from the way his parents think about things. The other main character is a girl whose family came from Jamaica to America when she was eight. Since she was so young, America is really the only place she knows as home. Her family came on visas and never left so they are in the country illegally. The story follows them as they're trying to figure out their lives. I enjoyed it and appreciate the view it game me. I do feel that teenagers will feel it more because they will be at that same point in their lives.
