Undoubtedly, both of these books are an example of her wonderful creation!

1.Everything, Everything : Her first debut novel is Everything, Everything. The book was released on November 1, 2015. Within a very short span of time, this book has made her number # 1 New York Times Bestselling author. In one word, it is a powerful, heart-wrenching, lovely, and deeply absorbing love story which you can easily devour just in one sitting. It is a wonderful and rare novel that depicts a great story with various lifts and shatters and ultimately fills your heart. The book is all about a “Bubble Girl” who lives in a protective bubble which her mother has actually built around her.

This heartwarming story portrays the major character, Madeline Whittier (Maddy) who is firmly allergic to the entire outside world. In fact, her condition is so allergic that she hasn’t ever left her house in all the past seventeen years. The story starts with her unique history of solitude and isolation. She is a girl with Severe combined Immunodeficiency (SCID). However, she is witty, slightly too literal, incredibly intelligent, and funny too. Plus, she also has a perfect or comprehensive level of maturity & acceptance towards her own condition. Maddy has no other human contact except her mother & her nurse.

Next, Olly (another major character) moves in her next door and he even wants to talk to Madeline. He belongs to a slightly dysfunctional family. From now onwards, a cute romance story is being unfolded through instant messenger & emails after watching each other for weeks. Their love story is cute and quite predictable, but it is really fun & sweet. Their sweet nature and innocence along with a love story – is really beautiful!

Their chemistry is well-written, tender, creative, and innocent. And, their heartwarming love story continues with many other twists, hopes, dreams, and even inherent risks. Overall, the author really did a pretty great job with her first novel that will eventually make you spellbound.

2.The Sun Is Also A Star : After making a grand debut with her first novel, currently, the writer is working on her second book “The Sun Is Also A Star” which is going to be released on November 1, 2016.

The book reveals a profound exploration of both life and love along with harsh realities. This is another heartwarming love story presented by Nicola Yoon that is smart, wistful, adorable, suspenseful and schmaltzy. It features two major characters, Natasha and Daniel.

The character, Natasha is much similar to a modern girl who believes in fact and science instead of fate and destiny. In fact, she doesn’t even believe in those unrealistic dreams that may never become true. She is realistic, practical, and sensible. She cannot just fall in love randomly with any cute boy instantly. But, when, her family is over 12 hours away from getting deported to Jamaica, will she fall in love with Daniel? Or, will it be something different?

Whereas, the other character, Daniel, has always been a great student and a good son who has fulfilled his parents’ high expectations each and every time. He’s not like a poet who believes in imaginary plots and facts. In fact, he is also not a dreamer. However, when he meets Natasha, something happens in his heart and his mind. Will they fall in love together?

Along with these two epic characters, the story continues with hopes, heartbreaks, fates, and suspense.
