Dorin and Kendyl talk fate, types of love, and immigration stories in this episode on The Sun Is Also a Star (2019).
Jess and Kendyl read Nicola Yoon’s The Sun Is Also a Star and have a ton to say about destiny versus chance, identity, and the butterfly effect.
The hosts talk Everything, Everything (2017): the astronaut, the texting, and the Rapunzel parallels, as well as revisiting the unknowns about Maddie’s mom.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon is an excellent way for the hosts to wrap up this book marathon they’ve been running. The parallels and differences in Maddie and Ollie’s families, what constitutes “living,” and whether we’d classify the story a Romance are just a few things discussed.
Question(s) of the Week: How convinced was Maddy’s mom about Maddy’s illness? Do you exist if no one can see you?
