It’s 1963 and everything is moving fast for 14-year-old Aurora in the northwest Louisiana countryside. Her often-manic thoughts and actions can cause those around her to shake their heads in bafflement, especially when her spirits nosedive. But it’s no puzzle for the mystical Mr. Hematite and his tiny assistant, Mr. Dragonfly. Together, they guide her in understanding the onset of her bipolar moods and show her that as Light Fixtures, everyone has the potential to shine with balance and brilliance.
Light Fixtures is a unique story with a young, bipolar protagonist (although she doesn't realize that she's bipolar). The YA fiction novel takes place in the northwest Louisiana countryside in the summer of 1963. The book has well developed characters, a fascinating plot, and is guaranteed to move you. Great read.
