I loved this book SO much but I find it hard to write a long review for books that I love for some reason so I’m simply going to share my feels through lists.
What I liked:
Yoon really has a talent of making her characters so vibrant and fleshed out that they practically jump off the pages. It’s such a diverse cast of characters that it just wasn’t your plain Jane- cyst gendered white individuals.
To my surprise- I really enjoyed Nicola’s writing style. It flowed so well and even if it technically a “slow” part of the story, I still had to force myself to stop reading because I didn’t want the experience to stop.
This novel was told in alternating pov’s between Daniel and Natasha which switched every other chapter. Occasionally, there was a extra little chapter written in a pov from someone that you wouldn’t even expect to be important to the story.
For example, one of the chapters was in the point of view of a security guard that Natasha comes in contact with for just a mere two pages. You wouldn’t think that the stranger’s point of view had any way of propelling the story forward, but chapters like those were probably my favorite of the book and it just made it so much more unique than it already was before this format was introduced.
A huge theme of this book is Immigration. Natasha was born in Jamaica but is at risk, along with her family of getting deported back after her father’s DUI. Yoon does an amazing job at really humanizing immigration so you can actually understand what they are going through, which I think is really important.
Daniel and Natasha fall in love in under 24 hours. While this is technically insta-love, it doesn’t exactly feel like it. They get so much accomplished in terms of getting to know each other in that short of a time that it feels like they have known each other for a span of years.
Nicola has also made the characters so opposite from each other but so much alike at the same time so that they fit together like pieces of a puzzle.
This was such an incredible story that I won’t be forgetting for a very long time.
