100 Days of Sunlight has to be one of the sweetest, most uplifting books I have read in a long time. I found myself smiling throughout and crying happy tears at the end. If you are not a blubbering mess when you finish this book, I don’t want to know you.
Tessa is a teenage girl who, after being in a car accident, is temporarily blind. It is supposed to last close to 100 days, hopefully. She is resentful, sad, angry, all the things you can totally understand. She is a writer of poems which she blogs. Her loving grandfather thinks that finding her someone to help type out her blog would be a good thing for her so he puts an ad in the local paper for a young girl to come and help. Tessa is angered by it and has him not run it. When he calls the paper to cancel, the owner’s son Weston finds out and he puts himself in the job. Tessa is unsure at first but there is something about Weston that she likes. Through the other senses, he opens up her world again. Weston falls in love and he is waiting for the day to come when she can see again, he is happy and yet he dreads it. He has his own secret that will be revealed.
This couple is one of the cutest couples ever. Weston is a kid with a lot going for him. He doesn’t let the word “can’t” into his vocabulary. Watching as Tessa opened up again was so joyful. There were just so many little things that added up to make this a very enjoyable read. I think I needed it in this world gone crazy. A book with characters who are kind, love each other, and cherish life, what more could you want?
Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this wonderful book.
