Sneak Peek Review | WHAT LIGHT by Jay Asher

I was given a sneak peek copy of the book through Netgalley. There’s not much to go on with what I’ve read, so I can’t share much, considering (of course) you too have also read the book blurb.

I could tell that this is going to be a contemporary fiction, which closely involves tight friendship, exemplar family, and idyllic Christmas. In other words, a good background for a love story. Lately, I’ve been reading YA fiction with non-functioning families, not that it didn’t work with the stories, but sometimes a reader finds ordinary relations more responsive. Which brings me to the characters in the book –they are not just likable, they are also very relatable –ordinary people going about their ordinary lives and challenges.

I know for a fact that, oftentimes, it’s the ordinary that can bring out the punch, it affects people, because they can mirror themselves in the characters, or at least deeply empathize with them. Besides, it is set in “the most wonderful time of the year.” So, WHAT LIGHT is really something to look forward to.

TFG will have this as our December book and you are welcome to discuss with us.
