What Light
by Jay Asher

Every year Sierra’s family leaves their Oregon farm to sell trees on their California Christmas tree lot. For as long as she can remember she has lived this double life, leaving one set of friends for another, while always accepting her family responsibilities. Love has never been part of the equation, until this year when she meets Caleb. Caleb is a walking; talking red flag but Sierra cannot help but be drawn to him. What happens next is a lesson in love, friendship, kindness and forgiveness that takes everyone in Sierra’s life by surprise, especially Sierra.

Jay Asher’s What Light creates an idyllic Christmas town full of heart and humor. It’s the perfect book to get you in the mood for the holiday season while cuddling up with an Easter mug of coffee with hot chocolate powder and a candy cane stir (you have to read the book).
