STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS: Rory is a young feminist who questions the patriarchal society she lives in and rebels against her school, her friends and the law.
THE HANDMAID’S TALE MEETS MEAN GIRLS: Dramatic but also funny and quotable, This Little Light balances the heaviness of the times with Rory’s sardonic humour.

A Chatelaine Summer Reads selection
One of CBC Books’s “34 works of Canadian fiction to watch for this fall”
One of The Globe and Mail’s “Summer Reads” selections
“[Lansens’s protagonist is] funny, perceptive and (at turns) heartbreakingly young…. Compelling female narrators, of course, are a hallmark of Lansens’s work. The same deft conjuring of personality that made The Girls…so unforgettable is at work here.” —The Globe and Mail
“In This Little Light, 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 one hell of a wake-up call. I was rooting for Rory from page one.” —Ami McKay, author of The Birth House and The Witches of New York
“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.” —Christina Dalcher, author of VOX
“Lori Lansens’s This Little Light is kind of a millennial’s take on The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s complex and fun and a super interesting look into what it is to be a teenage girl in these times. Lansens is Canadian and I’m a huge fan of hers. I’m working on turning this into a series with Universal.” —Kathleen Robertson, actor, Northern Rescue
PRAISE FOR THE MOUNTAIN STORY:
“[A] thoroughly delightful reading experience. The Mountain Story is the best kind of binge read: exhilarating, inspiring, and life-affirming.” —Quill & Quire (starred review)
“[A] harrowing tale becomes engrossing saga of renewal and redemption…. With The Mountain Story, Lori Lansens has written an epic work suffused with raw emotional power and resonance.” —Toronto Star
“It would be an utter waste of our magnificent landscape if Canadian authors like Lansens weren’t carrying on the tradition of wilderness lit. Thankfully, Lansens’s survival tale of four people stranded alone on a mountainside is as terrifying and gripping as it is an homage to the fearsomeness of the natural world.” —ELLE Canada
“Lori Lansens…returns with this terrific novel which plays a delicate and mesmerizing balancing act between survival thriller and heart-wrenching domestic drama…. Written with breathtaking pace, tingling with suspense, leavened by humour and high on emotion and drama, The Mountain Story is one of the most memorable and moving novels you will read this year.” —Longridge News
