This Little Light: A Novel

We rated this book:


“In a slightly dystopian vision of a future America, women’s bodies are no longer really theirs: abortion is criminal, pre-marital sex is discouraged in theory (but, unsurprisingly, still rampant in practice), and young girls across the country attend sensationalized “chastity balls” where they dress as virgin brides and promise their daddies they’ll remain chaste until marriage. Rory and Fee never really wanted to attend a chastity ball, but get swept up in the excitement… until the bomb explodes. Now the girls are the prime suspects and they’re on the run. Rory writes a blog during their time in hiding, determined to tell the truth because she’s not sure if they’ll live through the experience, and it’s vital that the secrets they know to be revealed one way or another.

This Little Light is a fast-paced read that pulls readers in quick. This novel has a lot more depth than readers might initially believe, and this alternate/possible future is fascinating and horrifying all at once. Some parts of the story are a little bit predictable, but others will feel like a punch to the gut, so surprising are the twists and turns. This book is highly recommended.”
