This Raging Light by Estelle Laure:
You know when the worst possible moment to start falling in love is? At about the same time that your mom skips out of town with no sign of returning, when your dad is taken away after he has a mental breakdown in front of your family, and you’re left with your younger sister and a slew of household duties to take care of. That’s exactly what 17-year-old Lucille is facing in Estelle Laure’s new novel, This Raging Light.
When we first meet Lucille, she has high hopes that her mother is only going on a short vacation to clear her head after the family’s very public drama is the talk of the town. But after a few days home with her 9-year-old sister Wren, it becomes very clear that there’s no sign of her mother returning, and she has to fend for herself. Lucille doesn’t want anyone to know that she’s caring for her sister on her own, especially since she’s under 18 and doesn’t want child services to get involved and separate them.
Truly Madly Famously by Rebecca Serle:
If you’re anything like us, you finished reading Rebecca Serle’s Famous In Love and immediately needed to know what happens next. The second book in the series, Truly Madly Famously, delivers exactly what we were craving – and takes the saga in exciting new directions!
We were first introduced to the main character, Paige Townsen, when she was an unknown actress cast in the next big thing blockbuster film franchise. But the second book shows us exactly how Paige’s life dramatically changes when she is done filming and all of a sudden she is in the public eye, where everyone wants to know every little detail of her life. There are snap-happy paparazzi waiting for her at every turn she takes, trying to capture her every move, waiting for her to make a mistake or juicy tabloid headline – and that includes everything to do with her relationship with her co-star, Rainer Devon.
