A teenage girl is running for her life in "a near-future that is stark, visceral and terrifyingly real" in this national bestselling dystopian thriller (Ami McKay, author of The Birth House).

Taking place over the course of forty-eight pulse-pounding hours, This Little Light draws readers into a near-future world of born-again Christians and celebrity worship where abortion is illegal and surveillance is everywhere. Sixteen-year-old Rory Miller and her best friend, Fee, are on the run after a bomb explodes at their elite Christian private school inside their triple-gated California community.

As Rory and Fee struggle to evade a media-frenzied search led by zealots and bounty hunters, Rory blogs their story in real time, determined to leave behind a record in their own words in case they don't make it out alive.

Author Lori Lansens weaves an intense, urgent, and enthralling read about an all-too-believable near future—and the world we already live in.


“Lansens throws her readers right into the action and keeps them there, as thirsty, hungry, and frightened as two young girls on the run. A crazy-good coming-of-age thriller that will make you sweat, starting at page one.”
author of VOX, Christina Dalcher

“Lori Lansens imagines a near-future that is stark, visceral, and terrifyingly real. Hallelujah for the audacious self-professed heathen, Rory Ann Miller, who holds the adults in her world accountable while reminding us to never stop fighting for freedom. This book is a one hell of a wake-up call. I was rooting for Rory from page one.”
author of The Birth House and The Witches of New York, Ami McKay
