A Light in the Dark

By Allee Richards
A Light in the Dark by Allee Richards digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Iris doesn't remember the first time she met Nina. But she remembers the first time she paid attention to her. It was when he did.

The first year of high school brought Iris into a type of privilege she'd never felt part of. But then she found her place. The magic of performing in school musicals and the freedom of the stage opened her up to a new world. Her drama teacher gave her a glimpse of the adult she wanted to be. But, just like in the theatre, when the spotlight is off you, it can be a lonely and neglected existence. For Iris, jealousy and bitterness will grow. For Nina, something more dangerous. Reckless anger and rumours will come to a head. And, years later, there is a reckoning for them all.

A Light in the Dark is a compelling novel that distils the magic of theatre as the backdrop for an unforgettable examination of friendship, vulnerability, power and abuse.

Thumbs Up“It’s been so long since I’ve read contemporary Australian fiction and A Light in the Dark was the perfect book to get back into it. It felt nostalgic and vulnerable and really shined a light on what it feels like to be shoved into adulthood before you’re ready.”
