After her bestseller-turned-movie, „Everything, Everything“, Nicola Yoon has written an enchanting New York love story that reads like a modern fairytale.

Daniel is a Korean-American teenager living in New York City, struggling with his parents‘ ambitions for his life. They want him to go to college and become a doctor or a lawyer. Daniel, instead, wants to become a poet. He (literally) runs into Natasha who, together with her Jamaican family, is facing deportation. Their flight is supposed to leave on the same day, and Natasha is desperate to find a last-minute way to stay in the United States.
