Book Review: The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

This book is about one of highest debated topics in America, undocumented immigrant.  I have my firm stand on this topic, so I am not going to go into detail here.  Another social issue the book bought up was ethnic identity.  I was born in Hong Kong, so I do not have to experience the trouble Daniel and his brother had to go through.  I am fine with people calling me, Chinese.  But if you were born in America and never been to your parents home country, how do you identify yourself? Chinese? American? American born Chinese?

The book was a really easy read.  Each chapter was only a page to 3-4 pages long in a big font size.  The book was categorized for Young Adult.  When I thought of YA, I assumed it was written for teens around 13-17.  However, I think this book is more suitable for older teenagers like 19-20.

I really liked this book, except for one little thing.  The mentioning of God or religious was a little more than my liking.  However, their argument on science (theories) vs religion was interesting enough to make it tolerable.

4.5 out of 5 stars
Received a free hardcover copy from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
