Rating: 5/5 stars
Teen Reviewer: Nanditha Prashanth
This book revolves around three main narrators/characters. Natasha, a Jamaican girl, who only believes in Science and facts to prove a cause. Not a girl to believe in love and fate. Whose future is being destined in the next 12 hours because of her father. Daniel is a Korean boy who is a good-son, smart, and a good student. But never the poet he wishes to be. Whose future is being destined in the next 6 hours. Lastly the Universe who decides the fate of all including Natasha and Daniel. The fate (Universe) managed to entangle these two people who seem to have come from the absolute opposite ends of life itself, in an arbitrary way of its own. The remaining of the book follows their journey as consecutive events build up to a unimaginable emotion in the entirety of the plot.
If you are a person who has an edge for scientific theory and a little romance, this book is definitely for you. This book showed me different perspectives of life but, the best part is that it taught a lot of valuable aspects in life that are not always appreciated or understood. Like how each person and event that happens in the world impacts you whether you know it or not. I also found the aspects of science in the book to be very informative. It was cool to understand what different people are thinking during a particular event. Overall I loved this book. It was perfect. The only thing is... this book may be hard to follow for some as it skips back and forth between the history, universe, Natasha, Daniel and side characters referring to the books narration. I give it 5/5 stars!
