How the Light Gets In

by Katy Upperman

Publisher: Swoon Reads

Release Date: August 6th 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary




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 have become.


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?

Author Guest Post:


How the Light Gets In is set in a small, coastal town in Oregon called Bell Cove. Bell Cove is a fictional place, but it was very much inspired by Cannon Beach, Oregon, a town I went to often when I was young, and continue to vacation in as an adult with my own family. I adore beach towns, and hope to live in one someday—when we can afford it, ha! In the meantime, we visit as many beachy towns as possible, and we’ve definitely found some gems. Here are my favorites…

Cannon Beach, Oregon – Featured in The Goonies, so obviously it’s awesome. Cannon Beach is small and adorable, with cute shops and fantastic restaurants. While the water is cold, the beach is gorgeous; at low tide, sea anemones and starfish can be seen at Haystack Rock.



Carmel-by-the-Sea, California – Probably the most enchanting town on my list, I used Carmel-by-the-Sea as inspiration for the fictional town, Cypress Beach, in my book The Impossibility of Us. Carmel-by-the-Sea has the cutest cottages, and its beach is dog friendly and perfect for watching sunsets.




Isle of Palms, South Carolina – Isle of Palms is tiny and there’s not tons to do, save its beautiful beach and delicious seafood restaurants, but it’s very close Charleston, a city full of history and charm, also on the coast. So, visiting this barrier island allows for all kinds of fun—the active, touristy kind, and the relaxing, regenerative kind.



Clearwater, Florida – Also located on a barrier island, this one along Florida’s gulf coast, which has the most perfect sugar sand beaches. My favorite thing about Clearwater is the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where marine animals are rehabilitated, and where A Dolphin Tale’s Winter lives.



Dewey Beach, Delaware – We discovered Dewey Beach recently, and we love it. It’s much more laidback than its popular neighbor, Ocean City, Maryland, but equally wonderful. Dewey Beach is great for shell hunting, sunrise gazing, dolphin spotting, and family-friendly dining.

My name is Kristi and I review books and mod on TBR and Beyond on Facebook. I love to travel and go to concerts. I've been married for over 20 years. I listen to a lot of pop punk. Otherwise, I'm pretty boring. We do have four grandchildren now and try to see them monthly since they don't live close. I read mostly YA and adult mystery/thrillers. I also read a lot of middle grade and some adult romance. You can also find me on facebook, twitter, and instagram (don't post often).
