The Sun Is Also a Star book coverJoin us on the 3rd Thursday of the month to hang out, eat snacks, and talk about books!

Our September selection is The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon :

DESCRIPTION: Two teens—Daniel, the son of Korean shopkeepers, and Natasha, whose family is threatened for deportation back to Jamaica—cross paths in New York City on an eventful day in their lives. Natasha is meeting with a lawyer to try to save her family while Daniel is on his way to an interview with a Yale alum. Soon they both realize what they thought was the impossible becomes possible—falling in love.

A BCPL BEST OF THE YEAR PICK (2016)
Tracy says:
Nicola Yoon’s follow-up to Everything, Everything is an an intensely moving and thought-provoking journey from beginning to end. What is on the surface a meet-cute romance becomes so much more as questions of destiny and chance arise and underlying connections are unraveled.
