Penguin Young Readers told The Associated Press on Wednesday it would be publishing Jay Asher’s “What Light,” billed as a “contemporary romance” in northern California that features a Christmas tree lot. According to Penguin, Asher was inspired to write the book after reading about a family in Oregon with a Christmas tree lot. No release date has been set.
“Thirteen Reasons Why,” his first book, was published in 2007 and sold more than 2 million copies. Selena Gomez is serving as executive director of the Netflix project.
Asher has also collaborated with Carolyn Mackler on “The Future Of Us.”
