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 This had a lot going for it but the pace threw me off and it had one of my most hated tropesso 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 uniue enough that it didn't feel like another paint by number dystopian I might have uite enjoyed this as a teen

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 The Grace Year opens like a mix of The Hunger Games and The Handmaid's Tale then shifts to a retelling of Lord of the Flies It's poised to be a feminist tale of sisterhood and euality but the protagonist who's a complete bonehead starts her journey with only male friendship and later isolates herself with another male companion The way she professes her love to him is by willingly sacrificing her dream of freedom and sleeping with him Not only is this a book whose themes miss the mark there are so many technical issues with the writing that it's impossible to enjoyFor a feminist retelling of Lord of the Flies that proves to be everything this book could have been check out Wilder Girls by Rory Power
