Book Synopsis

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton! The #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award Finalist from the bestselling author of Everything, Everything will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other.

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?

"Beautifully crafted."--People Magazine

"A book that is very much about the many factors that affect falling in love, as much as it is about the very act itself . . . fans of Yoon’s first novel, Everything Everything, will find much to love—if not, more—in what is easily an even stronger follow up." —Entertainment Weekly

"Transcends the limits of YA as a human story about falling in love and seeking out our futures." —

  • Beautifully written

    By milacake
    I don’t usually write reviews but I truly enjoyed reading this. I bought it because Everything Everything was so adorable I knew I liked the author’s style. This book surpassed my expectations. It’s funny, cute, clichê and not clichê at the same time. There’s sadness, joy and hope. She made me feel for these characters, the writing pace is fast so no time to get bored, with lots of fun facts in between that far from feeling like page feelers, they feel right. READ IT!!!

    This is just a good all round book. From the story line to the characters to the ending. It is entertaining and serious when it needs to draw you into the story.
