About this deal

I would rather spend the rest of this train ride fighting with him than let him be trapped alone with his thoughts and fears again. Their relationship with each other is fun, and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow throughout the book. i’ve seen so many of my friends on here read and love ann liang’s books, so i wasn’t surprised to like this one. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Utterly unique, thought-provoking, and wonderfully written, If You Could See the Sun was a thrilling ride that hooked me from start to finish.

She has two options : going back to the states for attending a school located in Maine or even worse going to the public school in Beijing. The way he was literally blushing whenever Alice looked at him and how he always wanted her attention was to die for! that man was going out of his way to help alice out countless amount of times and surprising me every moment i found out that he did!I love me some magical realism and it's always awesome to see YA that isn't set in the United States. Liang paints a clear picture of what it’s like to struggle for certain advantages that are seemingly handed to others, skillfully exploring themes of classism and privilege via a sympathetic protagonist who feels—sometimes literally—invisible. As a successful student/ study machine of Airington College, Alice can only get partial scholarship and she finds out her family cannot afford the rest of her tuition. Alice was cute I mean she was funny and everything but idk she kept blaming Henry for being born in a rich family like? When she isn’t stressing out over her college assignments or writing, she can be found making over-ambitious to-do lists, binge-watching dramas, and having profound conversations with her pet labradoodle about who’s a good dog.

The author did a good job of showing the escalation of the tasks students hired Alice to do, from rather sordid but standard spy jobs that gradually intensify towards outright criminal acts. Love and hate are separated by a thin line, and parallel to it are the blurred lines that Alice starts to cross when her intentions start off reasonably and turn into criminal activity.I was initially quite interested in the concept of If You Could See the Sun, but the execution of its most compelling concepts — academic rivals to lovers, an interrogation of elite Beijing educational institutions, the supernatural element of invisibility — left me feeling incredibly jaded, leading to a rather half-hearted finish of the book. HE IS MY YA AARON BLACKFORD (y’all know I never shut up about him - we’re talking ELITE, LOML, FELT IN MY SOUL, THIS IS RARE obsessions). I remember thinking a month ago about how much I hated him, how I couldn't bear to even be in the same room as him. i love the way she integrates asian culture without it being stereotypical ughh i just love love love her. it’s like it was completely disregarded after that and alice is just like “well it hasn’t happened again” and that’s it.
