About the Author
Emily Ziff Griffin lives in Los Angeles, where she writes, produces, teaches, daydreams, and mothers two young kids. When she was twenty-five, she cofounded Cooper's Town Productions with Philip Seymour Hoffman and produced the Academy Award-winning film Capote, along with Hoffman's directorial debut Jack Goes Boating, and John Slattery's God's Pocket. She's run three marathons, slowly, and holds a degree from Brown University in art-semiotics, the study of how images make meaning. She believes children are way more sophisticated than adults typically give them credit for and writes for the teenager who is ready to claim their own worldview and be grounded in their own power. Light Years is her first novel. Find her at EmilyZiffGriffin.com.
Reviews
"Light Years is searingly beautiful. A page-turner of a debut about life, death, loss, and love . . . and ultimately 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 important, 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, award-winning author of the Pennyroyal Academy series
"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
"Griffin crafts a gorgeously written tale with depth, suspense, intriguing characters, and an engaging plot that moves along like a gripping action film."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Light Years is a thrilling, thoughtful meditation on life and death."--Hello Giggles
The tone of Emily Ziff Griffin's novel is reminiscent of the works of Madeleine L'Engle--science meets contemporary life meets religion and faith. The first in what is likely to be a genre-bending series, Light Years is a well-paced read that is shockingly timely.--Shelf Awareness "October 2017 "
