As a mysterious virus infects the worldâ€™s population, a
girl embarks on a quest to find a cure in this thrilling
debut from Emily Ziff Griffin.
Luisa is ready for her life to start. Five minutes ago. And
she could be on her way, as her extraordinary coding skills
have landed her a finalist spot for a fellowship sponsored
by Thomas Bell, the worldâ€™s most brilliant and mercurial
tech entrepreneur. Being chosen means funding, mentorship,
and most importantly, freedom from her overbearing mother.
Maybe Lu will even figure out how to control the rare
condition that plagues her: whenever her emotions run high,
her physical senses kick into overload, with waves of color,
sound, taste, and touch flooding her body.
But Luisaâ€™s life is thrust into chaos as a deadly virus
sweeps across the globe, killing thousands and sending her
father into quarantine. When Lu receives a cryptic message
from someone who might hold the key to stopping the
epidemic, she knows she must do something to save her
familyâ€”and the world.
Suspenseful, lyrical, and thought-provoking, Light
Years features a remarkable heroine on an intensely
physical and emotional quest for hope and existential meaning.
