Natasha immigrated to America when she was 8 years old. Her dad wanted to become an actor and so he saw the scope of his passion in America so the entire family shifted illegally. After few years Natasha’s family is asked to deport the country.
It’s the last day when Daniel sees Natsha, with her headphones heading to somewhere. As Daniel believes in destiny, he thought that this is what the Universe wanted to show. All the bad and good things that happened to him this morning were leading to this way only.

The best part of this book is that history of each and every person is written in it. The story indicates that how every life is important and how everything is connected to each other and with the Universe as well.
This story will teach you what a difference a day can make!
The title of this book comes from the conversation when she asks him that why most of the poets are obsessed about stars? Why not the sun because the sun is also a star.
This story showcases the bravery and hope of immigrants. How it feels to leave the place where you have buried your memories of years and years. How it becomes difficult to decide that where is your home and where do you belong!
