Taste the Bright Lights

by Laura Canning

A hard-hitting novel following 14 year old Lisa as she runs away from an abusive home and learns to survive on the streets. Available now.

"Breathtaking... I finished it in one swoop and was totally amazed by it. Outstanding."

"..the most terrifying book I've ever read... Incendiary reading. Exemplary writing. I read it in one sitting and couldn't move for an hour afterwards. In fact, I'm still having nightmares about it."

"This book knocked me sideways. Will speak for the disenchanted voice of a generation much like 'Catcher in the Rye' did in the 50s."
