This book made me feel so many emotions so deeply. This is not just a love story about two teenagers who happen to meet by chance in New York City on one of the most important days of their lives that could determine their future. This is a story that tells many people’s stories, some are random people the two just meet in passing and some are integral characters in their lives. Not only can you relate to each of the main characters, Natasha who is all logic and science and doesn’t believe in love until she falls in love on the day before she and her family are about to be deported and Daniel, a poet whose family wants him to become a doctor and is heading to his college admission interview for Havard when he meets Natasha, but you can feel for all the people they are meeting and affecting. It is love/lust at first sight for both of them in a non-cliche way but Natasha tries to push her feelings and Daniel away since her future is so uncertain and she does not want to be hurt by love/feelings/dreams again. So Daniel spends all day with her, trying to make her fall in love with him. This book is so well written, the perfect mesh of feelings and logic that makes life meaningful. This book can make you change the way you look at life if you let it.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.
