5.0 out of 5 stars Lovers of Women's Lit and Science Fiction will enjoy The Grace Year
By Kari on October 8, 2019
The Grace Year
By Kim Liggett

Read: August 2nd-3rd, 2019
Edition: ARC e-book, NetGalley
Pre-Ordered: YES

I was provided a free copy of The Grace Year through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I regret that it has taken me this long to write my review for The Grace Year, but this book isn't like other books. The Grace Year has now become apart of me. It happened slowly, I didn't even realize it was happening at first, day after day, week after week The Grace Year kept digging into my subconscious, ingraining itself with my inner soul, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

The Grace Year is a mystery. I mean, seriously, we have NO IDEA what is going to happen in this book. All we know is that 16 year old girls have to go into the woods for a year. That's it. Well, color me intrigued. I requested the book upon immediate discovery and the rest is history... No no no. I got the book, I read it in less than 24 hours and I'm still thinking about it over a month later. The Grace Year is multi-layered, and sewn together perfectly, it's no wonder the rights have been sold for a movie. With extreme highs and extreme lows, The Grace Year will take you on a ride for your life. It will open your eyes, frighten, and inspire you. The Grace Year is made to make you look at your inner self and how we interact with the people around us. It also teaches us about love and loss and the secret language of flowers.

5/5 everyone and their families should read The Grace Year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a powerful book!
By Kristi on October 20, 2019
"The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." -Steven Biko

First Sentence(s):

No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden.

The Grace Year by Kim Ligget is a book I’ve been seeing around social media for a while and it really piqued my curiosity. To begin with, the cover is absolutely gorgeous and as I read the book, I really appreciated the symbolic meaning of it. I’m also a fan of The Handmaid’s Tale and Vox; two books that rely heavily on the demoralizing of women and the fear that men have of the ‘weaker sex’. So, for me, reading The Grace Year was a no-brainer. I won't summarize the book; this has been done and it’s hard not to incorporate spoilers. I think it’s better left for the reader to discover some things on their own.

As with any really great book, there are antagonistic characters and sympathetic characters; Ms. Liggett incorporates the conflict between them in a way that makes the story flow seamlessly. The dialogue is poetic and emotive, no word without meaning or great thought. Tierney is a wonderful protagonist and I loved her; she is flawed in a deeply beautiful way and so different from the other grace year girls. She doesn’t quite fit in Garner County but is smart enough to know she has to try because the alternatives are quite ugly.

The story is told in seasons and I found this to be clever and suited the story perfectly. I don’t see this as a purely feminist book but more a tale of the oppressed and of discord but also one of sisterhood and unity. I think this is a book that many will go into thinking they know the outcome – or potential outcome - but will be surprised at the spirit and essence of the story.
