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? - Goodreads
Where do I start... I was really looking forward to this book. I read Everything Everything by Nicola and absolutely loved it, I thought it was great. I had such high expectations for this book, but unfortunately it all just completely fell apart. I thought the writing was great, I loved the diversity in this book and the incredibly difficult themes that it tried to cover but I wish it focused more on those things and less on the romance. It was literally insta-love x100000. It was the most cringeworthy and unrealistic book that I've probably ever read. I really wish that I loved it, I really wish that I felt what everyone else feels about this book but I honestly cannot. I have so many issues with it. I'm so sorry if I offend anyone with what I'm about to say, I'm sorry if this was your favourite book of all time and I'm about to criticise it to no end, but it has to be done! Ready?...
