When 16-year-old poetry blogger Tessa Dickinson is involved in a car accident and loses her eyesight for 100 days, she feels like her whole world has been turned upside-down. Terrified that her vision might never return, Tessa feels like she has nothing left to be happy about. But when her grandparents place an ad in the local newspaper looking for a typist to help Tessa continue writing and blogging, an unlikely answer knocks at their door: Weston Ludovico, a boy her age with bright eyes, an optimistic smile…and no legs. Tessa spurns Weston’s “obnoxious optimism”, convinced that he has no idea what she’s going through. But Weston knows exactly how she feels and reaches into her darkness to show her that there is more than one way to experience the world. As Tessa grows closer to Weston, she finds it harder and harder to imagine life without him — and Weston can’t imagine life without her. But he still hasn’t told her the truth, and when Tessa’s sight returns he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life: vanish from Tessa’s world…or overcome his fear of being seen.

100 Days of Sunlight is one of the best books I have read in my life! It is the kind of book that leaves you feeling happy once you’re done reading it.
I had recently read a review of the book on Twitter which really intrigued me and I had to read it. When I got the email saying I was approved for the advanced review I was over the moon. Words cannot describe how I feel right now. It is just so beautiful!
100 Days of Sunlight is the debut novel written by Abbie Emmons. Before going deeper into the plot and characters can we talk about the cover art? If you have read my previous reviews you’d know I’m a sucker for pretty books and 100 Days of Sunlight is one of the most beautiful books I have come across in a while. The bright yellow and tropical sunlight vibes do set the mood for the book. Whoever did the cover did a brilliant job at it because that is what caught my attention in the first place.
It tells us the story of Tessa, a young blogger who temporarily looses her eyesight after an accident and Weston, a boy who looses his legs after a tragic accident when he was younger. He helps Tessa recover during her blindness and an unlikely friendship forms between the two. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t cry a bit while reading this.
We get to know the story through both Tessa’s and Weston’s point of view. We are given a backstory on how Weston recovered from his accident and why he wants to help Tessa feel better. You cry, you laugh and you smile with the characters.
The way the story flows from one situation into another is so good. She has written the characters so beautifully and they really do come to life in your mind. 100 Days of Sunlight is a feel-good sort of tearjerker kind of book. It just keeps getting better and better the more you get into the story. Westons relationship with his younger brothers is so sweet, Tessas relationship with her grandparents is adorable.
This is a happy story about recovery from a dark time. It is a story about love, friendship and family. Iys a story of determination and how no matter what happens in life, there will always be Sunlight at the end of that tunnel. It is a cute little romance that I can see getting made into a movie and I would pay good money to watch it.
I would recommend this book to everyone who loves teen romances and comedies. I would recommend this to everyone looking for a new read. Really hope the paperback comes to India soon because I need this book on my shelves. I love it so much I’m sure I’ll read it again.
