This was perhaps the BEST book I have read/listened to in a long while!! I loved everything about this story and fell in love with the characters as well. I have recommended this book to all of my friends. BTW, I'm a 43 year old, mother of two who is a hopeless romantic!!

This is a sweet little book of a Jamaican girl about to be deported who by happenstance meets a Korean-American boy, conflicted about his path in life. Both fall in love in the span of a few hours. Her writing style is solid, but this one is okay in comparison to "Everything, Everything". The story is implausible and the female narrator was annoying. Overall, a cute story, but not as great as it was hyped to be. Still worth the credit.

I don't really know what to add other than the word beautiful. It encompasses my feelings on the book. Looking forward to the next Nicola Yoon book.
Also perfectly narrated.
I was initially apprehensive with this book as I assumed it was for young adults, however I was surprised to find how well written and intricately constructed it was.
The narrative shifts between a young undocumented woman, originally from Jamaica but brought up in the U.S., and an American-born Korean, who find each other on her last day before she is deported. In between are segways of an unknown voice who delves into the different characters and their backgrounds. The book explores fate and free will and whether there is an overarching hand that shapes this.
Their romance resembles that of 'Before Sunset', which was enjoyable but obviously the dialogue in this novel is not as intelligent. It's bittersweet, coming-of-age, and takes you back to young love.
I'm a HUGE fan of the book so of course I like the audio book, however the voice was unexpected ahah.
Loved listening to this book.
Bit slow paced at times but I really loved it!
