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?
Our Bookseller says:
“There are no miracles here, which means it is both beautiful and full of varying degrees of heartbreak. On the surface, this is a boy-meets-girl love story where the characters fall fast and hard into their first love; luckily, it’s much more than that. It’s a story of immigrant families and generations, undocumented and not, and the author never takes the easy was out in platitudes but fully explores the characters and their experiences.” – Miranda <3
