The Grace Year No one speaks of the grace year It’s forbiddenIn Garner County, girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, to drive women mad with jealousy They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage But not all of them will make it home aliveSixteenyearold Tierney James dreams of a better life—a society that doesn’t pit friend against friend or woman against woman, but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that it’s not just the brutal elements they must fear It’s not even the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market Their greatest threat may very well be each otherWith sharp prose and gritty realism, The Grace Year examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make inbetween

    Happy Pub Day!!!

    I have to remind myself -the dresses, the red ribbons, the veils, the ceremonies- they're all just distractions to keep our minds off the real issue at hand. The grace year.

    My chin begins to quiver when I think of the year ahead, the u

    “Look around,” Kiersten says as she stares me dead in the eyes. “We are the only Gods here.”

    4 1/2 stars. Wow. This book was hard to put down! And the ending made me really emotional.

    The Grace Year refused to dissipate and hung like a poisonous vapor long after I finished it, pervading every corner of my room like a simmering toxin. The feeling was a violent plunge encompassing revulsion and sorrow far beyond the personal: a sick, scorching na

    This had a lot going for it, but the pace threw me off and it had one of my most hated a middle of the road 3 star is where we land. It's smart; conventional enough of a plot that it's easy to sink right into the story, but unique enough that it didn't feel like another paint-by-number dy
