Author: Jay Asher

Publication Date: October 18, 2016

Publisher: Razorbill

Synopsis: From Jay Asher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why, comes a romance that will break your heart, but soon have you believing again. . . .

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. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb’s past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that’s moving and life-affirming and completely unforgettable.


Each year Sierra and her parents travel from Oregon to California to sell their Christmas trees. However, this year might the last year the tree farm will be open. Sierra plans on making this year one she won’t forget.

Sierra was easily a likable character. She is a kind and sweet person. When she meets mysterious Caleb, all she is hoping for is a light and fun Christmas fling. It does not take long before Sierra realizes that this relationship might be more than just a Christmas fling.

As the first Christmas book I have read this year, this book was exactly what I needed to get me in the Christmas mood! Something about a Christmas tree farm and lots of peppermint mochas to make me even more excited for Christmas! What Light truly did take me by surprise, as contemporary books are hit or miss with me. What Light is not only one of my new favorite books, but it is a book that I plan on rereading when the holidays come back around! I still smile every time I think about this book, it’s just that darn cute!

4.5 out of 5 stars
