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?
When I first heard about this book, I wasn't sure that it was something that I would be into but after some perserverance I was pleasantly surprised. It was a humourous and emotional story which captured love, worries and fate all in one day.
This was the first inter-racial story that I have read and it was beautiful to see two young people from different backgrounds overcome the fears and prejudices from their families to develop a passionate relationship even if it was for a very short time!
At times, I found the two charaters POV went back and forth a bit too much but once I found a flow in the story it was quite easy to forget about.
A lovely romantic YA book to end the year in style.
4 out of 5 stars
