Read Î The Grace Year ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Summary ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Kim Liggett The wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage But not all of them will make it home aliveSixteen 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 uickly realizes that it’s not just the brutal elements they must fear It’s not even the poache. How do you review a book that you enjoyed reading immensely yet it has glaringly poor execution The plot is sooo good Welcome to a world where girls are banished to an isolated camp for their sixteenth year of life The Grace Year to vanuish the magic or power they hold over men only to be married off or assigned duties as an indentured worker upon their returnWhite ribbons for the young girls red for the grace year girls and black for the wives Innocence Blood DeathThis camp sounds like a great setup for some serious nightmarish drama huh Well we ll never know because very little of the storyline revolves around the day to day inner workings of the camp I found it difficult to get on board from the beginning because there is no background no history to tell the reader how we got to this point in time Little to no character development The pacing is so off Months pass by with the turn of a page Months that I wanted to hear about The MC had so much potential She is painted to be a strongwillled forward thinking girl in a backwards world Yet at the camp she allows herself to be mercilessly bullied to the point of near death with no attempts at defending herself In the end she does little to advance the plight of the women I don t think I m giving anything away here when I ask why does EVERY YA book feature a romance There s no room for it in this storyline It s another eye rolling insta love that does not fit the girl power themeThis book has been compared to a marrying of Lord of the Flies and The Handmaid s Tale and I think that s a fair assessment in as far as the plot goes However The Grace Year doesn t uite reach the level of tension and abject horror found in those stories This book lands flatly in the YA genre and teen girls are going to eat it up thus I suspect it will be an instant bestseller upon release 5 Stars for entertainment3 Stars for execution You do the mathI received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Read Î The Grace Year ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Summary ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Kim Liggett Rs 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 in betwee. Intelligent haunting mesmerizing emotional thrillerI loved this book so much I wanted to stop at a few points and discuss with someone but I didn t have anyone reading it with me or a book club to discuss it with There is just so much worth talking about I am feeling so much and out this book right now I just saw that it is being made into a movie and I already can t wait I was totally engrossed throughout the entire book and it surprised me often than not Almost every time I thought something was going to happen I got hit with something completely unexpected insteadIt starts out with the main character Tierney who is about to enter her Grace Year The county is set up with extremely misogynistic laws They say that girls have magic in their sixteenth year and that they are dangerous so they send all the girls away to a separate colony in the woods for a year and the girls from the previous year return on the same day as the new girls leaveBefore leaving they have a ceremony where the eligible men and 16 year old boys choose from the girls who they want to marry and they give veils to the fathers of their choice each father brings the veil home to his daughter At the ceremony the boy lifts the veil and the girl sees the boy whom she will marry The girls not chosen will either be sent to the fields or put to service for the remainder of their lives Tierney isn t like other girls she doesn t long to get a vail and get married she actually wants to work in the fields She feels being married is tantamount to being ownedOne strange part of the story is the girls that go away they are at a colony like place surrounded by walls and woods and there are poachers outside the walls So if any of the girls stray from the path on the way there try to escape while they are there or get banished by the rest of the girls for some reason are almost immediately caught by the poachers They skin the girls alive and put all of their organs and parts into jars to be sold on the black market The poachers won t come into the colony for fear of being cursed by the magic The poachers are men from the outskirts of the county They are generally the sons of prostitutes People women or girls from the county can get banned to the outskirts as punishment Young girls are punished if their sisters go missing during their Grace year and their bodies are not accounted for by the poachers Punishments are harsh obviously and doled out by the council In fact the only time magic comes up is when it s convenient for them Like when Mrs Pinter s husband died Mr Coffey suddenly accused his wife of twenty five years of secretly harboring her magic and levitating in her sleep Mrs Coffey was as meek and mild as they come hardly the levitating sort but she was cast out No uestions asked And surprise surprise Mr Coffey married Mrs Pinter the following day But if I ever made such an accusation or if I came back from my grace year unbroken I would be sent to the outskirts to live among the prostitutes What happens during Tierney s Grace Year is uite a revelation I couldn t figure out for the longest time if the magic was real or not Also we know that in certain ways Tierney was prepared for the year than many of her female counterparts because she was a tomboy and worked with her father as well as spent a lot of time in the woods with Michael but she had so much going against her Kiersten was the leader of the girls and she makes an awesome villain She was evil from the beginning when she teased Tierney saying she would pray for her to get a vail During the this time I think I felt everything Tierney was feeling The book was so well written The characters all came alive I could see the camp the well the cots the tree it was all so vivid I really can t wait for it to be brought to life in movie form I don t like to give away any spoilers past the beginning 10 20% of the book so I won t go into but to say that Tierney finds a lot of truth about herself her family and her society as she is out there It is a true physical and emotional journey and it s awesomeI voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my ownBlog Goodreads Facebook Instagram Twitter BookBub

    PDF (The Grace Year) 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
