What Light

Jay Asher, read by Mandy Siegfried. Listening Library, , unabridged, 6 CDs, 6.5 hrs., $40 ISBN 978-0-7352-8470-8
Every year after Thanksgiving, Sierra leaves her home on an Oregon Christmas tree farm to accompany her family to California to sell their trees. Conflict arises this year, when Sierra meets the boy of her dreams but finds he has a troubled past. Actor Siegfried nails the breathless and giggly way high school girls sometimes talk to each other, especially when Sierra is talking with her three best friends. The problem is the girls all tend to sound the same, even Heather, Sierra’s take-charge friend in California, who is a more prominent character than Sierra’s other two sidekicks. The novel’s young male characters are likewise vocally indistinguishable from one another, including Caleb, the tortured love interest; his former best friend; and a jealous, angry hired hand at the tree lot. Ages 12–up. A Razorbill hardcover. (Oct.)
