Bryan's Experience.
''Everyone's crazy, girl. You learn that after a while. Just depends which kind and whether you want it or not. That's what you decide. The rest is out of your hands''

It is worth mentioning that this book I officially completed my GoodReads challenge of 50 books. So that makes me even happier I have done with this wonderful book.

 
This Raging Light promised much; the cover is beautiful, the synopsis is truly intriguing and a rollercoaster of emotions. And I'm happy to say it met all my expectations.
 
''I guess we all have to be grateful for the little things''


The plot itself is not very complex but if it is full of feelings and humanity. At first we see a teenager dealing with the reputation that his father left them and to top it off now that his mother has abandoned her and her sister must begin to take care of his sister. Alone and with little money, Lucille shows that even in the worst times someone will guide you and give you light. Someone like Digby Jones.

Lucille tenacity along with their desire to succeed without anyone knowing that his mother is gone, go make it grow throughout the book. Little did I meet with something, but I really identified with the characters. Eden is wonderful and a beautiful human being like Wren.

''Maybe there are just some things we can't explain. That maybe when a lot of bad things happen, good things have to happen too''

If you pay attention, you can see that the characters have to repetitive chains which are exercised, as the mother of Lucille. By the way, if you're waiting to know why her mom left, believe me you will be disappointed that you will not find it. Although not very relevant, if I would have liked to know more about that but eventually you can elucidate why she abandoned them, you just need a little common sense.


''Most people totter their whole lives. They never let themselves fall, never take the hit. They just go along, trying to do what they think they're supposed to. They never try to find put what's true for them, because that would mean being brave in a way people aren't''

As I said, I loved the characters that are not typical linear and fictional characters; they are real, show feelings and you can related to them. Each has its own essence and personality. They range from a waitress on Fred's or even a dancer lover of literature.Estelle Laure certainly wowed me with his literary style and its fascinating and entertaining prose. His way of seeing things is encouraging. Really, I stressed many parts of the book and phrases that have become my favorites.
A funny, sentimental and emotional story that will leave you with a smile on your face, tears in your eyes and wanting more.
