Kendra Leighton is a YA author. Her debut novel, Glimpse, was published in 2014 by Constable & Robinson's imprint Much-in-Little.

“The sun had dipped below the horizon and the sky was almost entirely pencil-lead grey. It felt like the normal world had followed the sun over the horizon too, leaving me in this cold, dark universe that made no sense.”
Kendra Leighton, Glimpse

Kendra Leighton, Glimpse
