praise for 'light years'

"The intersection of spiritualism, physical health, and a global community creates an evocative message that hints at the butterfly effect one person can have. Griffin's near-future worldbuilding is stylish, immersive, and entirely plausible.... A supernatural romantic thriller that defies convention." --Kirkus Reviews


"LIGHT YEARS is searingly beautiful. A page-turner of a debut about life, death, loss and love, which ultimately filled me with hope. Emily Ziff Griffin is an important new voice in YA fiction, and Light Years is an important book." --Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places and Holding Up the Universe


"LIGHT YEARS couldn't be more timely. In the midst of so much chaos and strife, Griffin's protagonist, Luisa, manages to feel, to hurt, to love, and most importantly, to persevere. It is a beautiful story of grit and resilience, a potent reminder that when our own world seems to be crumbling, it's up to us to make something of ourselves." --M.A. Larson, critically-acclaimed author of the Pennyroyal Academy series
