Synopsis

This Raging Light by Estelle Laure

How is it that you suddenly notice a person? How is it that one day Digby was my best friend's admittedly cute twin brother, and then the next he stole air, gave jitters, twisted my insides up? Lucille has bigger problems than falling for her best friend's unavailable brother. Her mom has gone, leaving her to look after her sister, Wren. With bills mounting up and appearances to keep, Lucille is raging against her life but holding it together - just.

Reviews

A novel to be recommended both as good read and as a means of focusing young minds on issues which are relevant to their age group as well as being of general importance * School Librarian * Love love LOVE this book. -- Ellie * Good Reads * I can't even begin to write a review about how much I love this book. Mainly because my eyes are swollen shut from crying steadily from about a quarter of the way through the book all the way to the end. -- Ms. Kim * Good Reads * Like poetry trapped in prose body, this book sings. -- Madison * Good Reads * Lucille's voice is beautiful, the writing is beautiful, and the story is so filled with hope and love and humor even when things are hard. -- Rachel * Good Reads * This book made me smile and cry countless of times... it warmed and broke my heart at the same time. -- Gisabelle * Good Reads * I admired the protagonist's character and determination, I admired that she was willing to go through days that would tire out a hardworking adult- let alone a teenage girl with school to attend and a house and sister to take care of. -- Guardian children's books site teen reviewer * The Guardian * The relationships between Lu and Wren and Eden were fantastic. Eden and Lu had an amazing friendship ... captured the unrequited part perfectly. The throbbing heart. The yearning. The longing. All true. (And, for me, a familiar sight.) And I loved that Lu's emotions were relatable. Because those emotions could come from me.' * The Guardian * Estelle Laure's writing is poetic and beautiful, making the novel an amazing read. -- Guardian children's books site teen reviewer * The Guardian * It manages to be both heartbreaking and uplifting. A great addition to any young adult collection * Book Trust * I would highly recommend that you run to your nearest bookshop to pick this gem up: it's 100% worth it! * Delightful book reviews * Oh wow * Studio Reads *
