LightKaty 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?

Please note that this book may be triggering for some readers due to a tragic death and the grief behind it.

The story itself is on the darker side dealing with grief from the loss of a sister. But there’s a surprising twist when her ghost visits leaving a haunting, supernatural feel which I loved reading. From there, we are thrown into a mysterious tale surrounding her death.

This is a great YA contemporary that will stay with you long after putting the book down. I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars, and recommend it to those who like a touching, slightly haunting story with an emphasis on sisterhood.

But don’t think it’s all darkness as the plot is balanced with a comforting romance.
