Hi all, this second week of December the Christmas tale I will review for you is one of young love. Yes, it’s your regular teen romance with a slight twist to it; a Christmas twist. So, as the holiday season starts, I will leave you with a story that captivated me from the beginning.
Title: What Light
Author: Jay Asher
Publication details: Razorbill; 2016
What this book is about: Sierra’s family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon. It’s a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other. By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. Sierra sees beyond Caleb’s past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. But as disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra can’t help but wonder if love really is enough to overcome every obstacle…
My review: A delightful love story!! I like teen love stories that don’t have too much adult content, just a love story!! This is a story where you can truly fall in love with characters as Jay Asher has given us an amazing couple in Sierra and Caleb. What I truly enjoyed was how Jay Asher expertly unraveled Caleb’s secrets and described Sierra’s emotions as she dealt with it all!! A book with amazing writing! Great for teens though.
My rating: 4 ⭐
