The Grace Year


      The Grace Year
A speculative thriller in the vein of The Handmaid s Tale and The Power Optioned by Universal and Elizabeth Banks to be a major motion picture A visceral, darkly haunting fever dream of a novel and an absolute page turner Liggett s deeply suspenseful book brilliantly explores the high cost of a misogynistic world that denies women power and does it with a heart in your throat, action driven story that s equal parts horror laden fairy tale, survival story, romance, and resistance manifesto I couldn t stop reading Libba Bray, New York Times bestselling authorSurvive the year.No one speaks of the grace year It s forbidden In 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 alive Sixteen year old 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 other With 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 in between.

    Do not be fooled by the excessively pink cover, this is not a sweet story and the characters do not care to be likeable and cherished by the reader It s a wild, wild world and so are the girls in it I have not read a YA dystopian in over a year, but this one reminded me why I used to actively seek out these types of stories Because they are messy and ugly and dramatic and despite all that, or maybe because of it, I am fascinated In Tierney s dystopian society, teenage girls ar...
