Katy Upperman
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: August 6th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Katy Upperman’s How the Light Gets In is a haunting YA novel about a teen coping with the loss of her sibling.

Since her sister’s tragic death, seventeen-year-old Callie Ryan has basically given up. Her grades have plummeted, she’s quit her swim team, and she barely recognizes the people her parents once were.

When she returns to her aunt’s run-down coastal Victorian one year after Chloe’s death, Callie resigns herself to a summer of guilt and home renovations. She doesn’t expect to be charmed by the tiny coastal town or by Tucker Morgan, a local boy brimming with sunshine.

But even as her days begin to brighten, Callie’s nights are crowded with chilling dreams, unanswered questions, and eerie phenomenon that have her convinced she’s being haunted. Will Callie be able to figure out what her sister is trying to communicate before it’s too late?

Review of How The Light Gets In

Review (5 Stars): How The Light Gets In is one of my favorite novels this year.  Callie lost her sister, Chloe, and has been slowly falling apart.  Her family decides that the best thing for her is to spend time with her aunt, renovating her bed and breakfast.  When she arrives, strange things start happening and Callie wonders if her sister is trying to tell her something.

This book broke my heart.  There was so much pain and so many things that were unsaid after Chloe’s death.  They lost the light in their life and they needed something that chase away the darkness that had been plaguing them. Beautiful story.
