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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A sweet, aching tale of first love and forgiveness.”

    Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Asher infuses his storytelling with a compelling sweetness and innocence; What Light casts the same warm glow as a room strung with twinkly Christmas-tree lights.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Harks back to a simpler time of young adult storytelling with its linear first-person narrative and classic themes of forgiveness, hope, and the power of true love.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “This is a sweet, light romance, perfect for holiday reading.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Asher is a dab hand at capturing everyday situations and conversations; Sierra and her friends tease and quip in ways that are witty but not overly so, and Sierra’s frank talks with her parents have the tone of a mature, beloved only child who is used to being heard even as her parents set the rules.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Gets into the heart of what is important in relationships…[The] characters are realistic and well developed. Teens will see themselves in these characters and relate to them.”

    VOYA

  • “Narrator Mandy Siegfried portrays Sierra as she tries to balance her life in both places. Siegfried’s delivery is well paced as she shares Sierra’s love for both the tree farm and the sales lot.”
