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.


This was a very cute Christmas read that definitely got me into the holiday spirit. It was not what I expected from the author of “13 Reasons Why”.  There was friendship, giving, romance, a bit of mystery, and Christmas Trees!!!  It’s not an outstanding book. It’s not going to win any awards or be on anyone’s top books ever written lists, but it does hold it’s own. The story was well written and brought me into the world of Christmas Tree selling. I learned a few things about tree farming and selling. I fell in love with Sierra and Caleb, and by the end of the book I really wanted to know more. Will they stay together? Will Sierra’s family be back next year? How does the dance go? Will Caleb keep up with his giving? Will Sierra join him with her cookie making? Grrr!!!! So many loose ends! Despite all my questions, I think that this book is perfect for any teen (or teen at heart) looking for a quick adorable holiday read.
