The Sun is Also a Star
This book is inspired by the Big History theory (to learn about one thing, you have to learn about everything). In THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR, to understand the characters and their love story, listeners must know about everything around them and everything that came before them, to know how it has affected who they are and what they experience.
