This Raging Light
Her dad went crazy. Her mom left town. She has bills to pay and a little sister to look after. What Lucille needs is to keep it together. But what she wants is something else altogether. Despite efforts to the contrary, Lucille has fallen—inconveniently , irrevocably—in love with her best friend’s brother, Digby. “Who is this boy I’ve known for most of always, and why is her everything?” Lucille asks herself. Of course, because life is complicated, Digby already has a girlfriend, and his sister, Eden, is wary of her friend getting involved with her brother. What unfolds is the story of a girl who learns that life and love can be unexpected, scary, and amazing…all at the same time.
