Winter 2015-2016 Kids’ Indie Next Pick!  
Her first-person narration is lyrical, akin to that of a Francesca Lia Block character, but there's an undercurrent of roughness in her voice… heartbreakingly hopeful, lyrically told..." —
Kirkus    "Estelle Laure’s prose is utterly gorgeous, even as it lays out the story of a girl dealing with the failings of her parents, death, and her own insecurities."
—BookRiot   “Estelle Laure’s 
This Raging Light might be YA, but it’s got plenty of grown-up appeal.”
—entertainmentweekly.com   "Laure’s debut stands out for her keen understanding of the spectrum of human emotions, and her ability to put tough feelings into beautiful prose." 

Horn Book   “In an assured debut, Laure gives Lucille a fierce stubbornness that keeps her going. . . The characters are well drawn, and Laure effectively depicts the adrenaline rush of love.” —
Publishers Weekly   “
This Raging Light is a funny, heartwrenching, and soulful read as Lucille develops her own personal family, bloodline or not. It's not one you'll soon forget.” —Bustle   “Lucille's fresh, first-person voice spills over with metaphor, poetically capturing her emotional landscape with force and fury, frantic love and absolute exhaustion.” —Shelf Awareness   “Laure’s debut is brilliant and not to be missed.” —

"I loved this book. I was torn between wanting to devour it in one breathless read and needing to stop and savor each gorgeous turn of phrase. This is a remarkable debut." -Morgan Matson, author of Amy & Roger's Epic Detour and Since You've Been Gone " This Raging Light is a funny, poetic, big-hearted reminder that life can -- and will -- take us all by surprise sometimes." -Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and The Geography of You and Me "Estelle Laure writes with power and lyricism--but more than that, she writes honestly from the heart. Definitely a writer to watch!" -A.M. Jenkins, Printz Honor winning author of Repossessed "With This Raging Light , Estelle Laure establishes herself as a literary heavyweight.
