It took me quite a while to finish this book. It’s a YA genre and perhaps not the kind that has hard core reality stuff in it. But it has some very amazing lines. Also, I liked how the author chose to move between the first person perspective of each character, with each chapter telling the story from the character’s view.
Here are some of my favorites lines from The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon.
No one wants to believe that life is random.
If snow falls in a city and no one is around to feel it, is it still cold?
I’m happy to have choices. They’re mine to make.
On Falling in Love:
I want to do the easy thing, not the right thing. I want to fall in love, with an emphasis on the falling part. No obstacles in the way, please. No one needs to get bruised up falling in love. I just want to fall the way everybody else gets to.
What if this thing between us was only meant to last the day? What if we are each other’s in-between people, a way station on the road to someplace else? What if we are just a digression in someone else’s history?
I remind myself that stars are more than just poetic. If you need to, you can navigate your way by them.
