This Raging Light
by Estelle Laure
This powerful, beautifully written young adult novel centers around Lucille. Her mom hasn't returned from a solo vacation and her dad has been gone a while now. So now she's caring for her younger sister, Wren, all by herself and trying to keep it a secret from everyone. She's also falling hard for her longtime best friend's twin brother, Digby Jones. Complicated. The prose in this is sharp and artfully crafted. You will be surprised by many turns of phrase along with interesting and unexpected twists of plot.
