Picture Us in the Light Reviews

  • Dove

    Omg. This book deserves more than 5 stars. And I’m not just saying that. I truly mean it. This book captured my attention and held onto it throughout every word. I think I read this book at the perfect time given the current state of affairs in the states with DACA and illegal immigrants and families being torn apart. This book gave me the inside picture. It made me cry, it moved me, and it really changed the way I viewed things. It’s about this boy whose parents are illegal immigrants and they ...more

    He looks unruffled. Why did it feel like a lightning bolt to me, then?

    If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be this: disconnected. It’s well-written, with thoughtful characters, but it pulls you all over the place. At one point I thought it was exploring the grief of losing a friend, and then it was the grief of losing a family member, and then it was exploring the struggles of moving away from home and friends, dealing with fighting parents, struggling with trying to be creative

    HOLY WOW

  • Lisa

    This book tackles so many big issues - each handled with care and complexity. It just wasn’t for me (the plot is very heavy for most of the novel). I think many will appreciate its honesty and depth.

  • Kelly

    There are a LOT of things tackled here -- suicide, friendship, the post-graduation choices we make, parental woes, immigration, abduction, sexuality and (view spoiler), in addition to things which are more daily/common. I don't think they were handled poorly in any capacity, but I don't think they were well written. There's a lot of unnecessary information dumped here, particularly about relationships between/among characters (the long passages about Harry and ...more

    I don't think I've read a contemporary that's so gripping and Real and nuanced and devastating yet healing in a while

    CW/TWs: depression, suicide, panic attacks, adoption, human trafficking

  • Stormi (Bewitched Reader)

    I was so excited to read this book after reading a preview of the first few chapters. The preview had left me intrigued about Danny's parents and the secrets they held onto as if their lives depended on the truth never getting out.

    Gilbert did an excellent job at pacing this story and winding the mystery surrounding Danny's family into the changes and challenges he was facing with the end of his senior year fast approaching. Her easy flowing and conversational writing style made reading this stor

    If I were to describe Picture Us in the Light in one word it might be “complex.” Or maybe “squishy.” “Beautiful.”

    Human.

    I have a bad (?) habit of not fully reading synopsis before picking up a book. Really, I don’t need to when it comes to Kelly and her books. Conviction is easily one of the books you’ll ever read so there was exactly zero chance I wouldn’t love this.

    I sit here, a week after finishing, unable to read anything else. Danny’s story isn’t just the story of a child of immigrants, of
