Finished What Light by Jay Asher. I received a copy for review. This post will run again closer to its release date.
Sierra’s parents own a Christmas tree lot in another state which means that one month a year, they leave their hometown and head south to sell the trees. It’s always fun (she loves the trees and has a best friend there, too) but her main rule is no boys. You can guess what happens this year.
I very much enjoyed this story although I think I would’ve liked it more if I had never read Thirteen Reasons Why. That book is one of those that never really lets you go. This book is sweet and fun and I love it but it’s not the same.
Even so, this is more than just a simple love story. It’s about first love, of course, but it’s also about family and friends and redemption. And, obviously, it’s about Christmas. If you want a great holiday read, check this one out–but try not to compare it to Thirteen Reasons Why.
