Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize

The dazzling new novel from Nicola Yoon, the New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything.

               To be clear: I don’t believe in fate. But I’m desperate

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?

Waterstones Booksellers fell in love with this novel, as they did with her first, a book about the many possible futures in a life that has barely begun.

‘...a deep dive into love and chance and self-determination — and the many ways humans affect one another, often without even knowing it.’ — New York Times, Book Review

‘...lays bare the hopes, dreams and regrets of everyone from family members to complete strangers...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

“A beautifully crafted novel full of life and passion”

I wasn’t sure about this book at first. I’ve gone off m/f romance, and until now I haven’t read much contemporary. But I kept coming back to it. And the fact that it works for four categories of #DiversityBingo2017... More
