Book of the week: What Light by Jay Asher


Laci LaDuke, Book Critic/Obsessive Reader

What Light by Jay Asher is a romantic Christmas novel. With Christmas trees and Hot Chocolate, love is bound to be in the air. But for Sierra, Christmas has always been all business. Every year, her family travels from Oregon to California to sell their trees. This year though, she makes a deal with her best friend to find a guy for the holiday so they can go on double dates. She meets Caleb, a guy with a rumored bad past and a kind heart. As time goes on, she learns the truth behind his rumors, and goes against her parents wishes. This gentle romantic is perfect for the holiday season, or any other time of the year. It may not be a slow burn, but its cheesy romance will have even the most stone faced reader smiling.
