#Review: LIGHT IN MY DARK by Jean Gilbert and William Dresden




  3.5 out of 5 stars
 
Harper Deveraux is tired of being stuck in the small town of Glen Eden and longs for adventure. One of the best things about being stuck there though is her best friend Jack, that is, until a new boy Knes moves to town. Harper is instantly attracted to him and she's clueless of Jack's true feelings for her. As Knes pulls Harper away from her world and into Non, the only one standing in the way is Jack. Without a second thought, Jack dives through the wall in order to save the love of his life.

I applaud the authors on a well-written book. The descriptions of the world of Non brought the strange world alive and the constant struggle between Light vs Dark, and Good vs Evil kept my interest. I have a few slight criticisms of the book and that's why it's rated only 3.5 instead of a solid 4 rating. The first one is the length. I thought some of the descriptions went on far too long and I found myself skipping a lot of paragraphs because of this. I also thought Harper was a bit immature. It could be that I don't usually read too many YA books, but aside from these slight issues, the book will certainly become a favorite of YA readers.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
