by Nicola Yoon: Natasha, practical and scientific, is an undocumented Jamaican teen searching for legal help before she and her family are deported. Daniel is a Korean-American poet reluctantly on his way to a Yale admissions interview when he meets Natasha on the streets of New York City. Over the course of the day, Natasha and Daniel debate love and destiny, neither denying the powerful connection they feel between each other. Although they are racing against time and a tangled system of life, love can find a way to take hold - and possibly change the two teens - forever.
