Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie McGuire comes a riveting tale of first love that starts young but runs deep.

The first time Elliott Youngblood spots Catherine Calhoun, he’s just a boy with a camera, and he’s never seen a sadder and more beautiful sight. Both Elliott and Catherine feel like outcasts, yet they find an easy friendship with each other. But when Catherine needs him most, Elliott is forced to leave town.

Elliott finally returns, but he and Catherine are now different people. He’s a star high school athlete, and she spends all her free time working at her mother’s mysterious bed-and-breakfast. Catherine hasn’t forgiven Elliott for abandoning her, but he’s determined to win back her friendship...and her heart.

Just when Catherine is ready to fully trust Elliott, he becomes the prime suspect in a local tragedy. Despite the town’s growing suspicions, Catherine clings to her love for Elliott. But a devastating secret that Catherine has buried could destroy whatever chance of happiness they have left.

This book was not a surprise for me at all, I figure out within the first 1/4 of the book what was going on because I've read another version of this before. I still enjoyed most of this book except the teen angst was a little too much for me and some of the things that happen were a little too far fetched for my taste but since it's YA, I kind of expected that. Jamie McGuire wrote a fascinating story that even though I knew what was happening it still kept me enthralled until the end. I think the teens in this book were more realistic then the adults, some of the situations with the teachers & parents made me roll my eyes. If you've never read The Whispers and the Roars... give All the Little Lights a try, your probably love it!

The narration was great, I thought they both did a great job for all the characters.

She's back!

I'm always hesitant to start a Jamie McGuire book. I know it's going to grip me I won't be able to stop listening and then stop thinking about what I've listened to. As with all of her books, it's beautifully written. It's a love story and so much more. This story follows the young love of Elliot and Catherine. They meet as young children and we watch them grow into young adults. The ending will make your jaw drop. This will definitely be one I will re-read many times.

Horrible!!!

One of the worst books I've ever endured. It was long, drawn out, boring and just all around unenjoyable. Katherine was an idiot... no child, and especially a teenager would stick around like she did. Angsty, immature and petty (who holds a grudge against a 15 year old? cause they have so much control over their lives? or I dont know, go to talk to your friggin neighbor?) I just didnt care! The sheer amount of eye rolling, loud sighs and muttered phrases like "god this is stupid" and "is this almost over?" was record breaking. The twist was totally predictable and 100% the daughters fault for again, being an idiot. Thank god I listened to the audio version... I had it set to chipmunk speed to just get thru it. yuck. hard pass you guys.

Loved this book!

This book really kept me guessing all the way up to the end! I thought I had it figured out several times only to figure out I hadn’t. I loved this book.

Well i certainly didn't see that one coming in this one!

All the Little Lights is a YA book with a cracking little twist in it, the book is based around Catherine and Elliot.

Friends since they were young children, Catherine and Elliot spent every minute they could together, walking and talking, and Elliot taking pictures with his camera that he seems to be surgically attached to.

They were very sweet together, and they made plans to travel the world together when they grow up.....except that doesn't happen, Elliot's mother hates the town, and the people in it, she grew up there and was bullied because of her heritage, her family are Cherokee and she was not made welcome in the town.

She doesn't want this happening to her son (even though he's quite popular) so she literally drags Elliot to the car one day and takes him away, the thing is that she doesn't give him a chance to say goodbye, and on this particular day Catherine really needs him.

With no access to phones and his father taking away his car, Elliot has no way of getting in touch with Catherine to apologise, and it stays this way for 2 years!

In the meantime Catherine is helping her Mother keep their guesthouse in shape by working herself to near exhaustion with the cleaning / cooking etc, as well as keeping up with her schoolwork.
The guests are very "in-your-face" and won't hardly leave her alone, and some of them downright scare her.

Catherine has never forgiven Elliot for leaving her, so when he shows up out-of- the-blue asking for forgiveness she has to make a decision on whether she wants to spend time with him, or help out at the guesthouse where her mother is slipping into a more depressed state.

In the middle of this story pops up another one, a girl in Catherine's class goes missing, and the finger seems to be pointing in Elliot's direction.......

With a twist that i actually didn't see coming for a change, i thoroughly enjoyed this book.

The reason why i didn't 5 star it, is because it was very lengthy, there was a lot of mundane information that i feel could have been skipped that wouldn't have impacted the story at all, and still kept me interested.

🎧🎧 Narrated by 2 new narrators for me Karissa Vacker and Darrell Dennis, both did a great job but i think Karrissa may have stolen the show on this one, she was excellent.

Happy listening
