The Grace Year: A Novel by [Kim Liggett]

The Grace Year

By Kim Liggett

Don’t be fooled by the pink cover; this story is not for the faint-of-heart. This gritty tale is set in a misogynistic society where, upon turning 16, all girls are banished from the village for a “grace year” to “release their magic” before they can return home to be married off to the men who choose them. Head-strong Tierney has every reason to dread this year: girls never return the same, and many never return at all. Is it the poachers in the woods, hunting the girls to steal their magic? Or are these brutalities inflicted by the girls themselves? With hints of The Hunger Games, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Lord of the Flies woven throughout, this savage, action-packed story will haunt you.
