Overview

Notes From Your Bookseller

Though set in a dystopian world, this unputdownable thriller is a haunting exploration into the all-too-real way society sees and treats women and the complicated relationships women have amongst themselves. Readers will be mesmerized by Liggett's immersive world-building and captivated by the nonstop action. Deeply unsettling in the best way possible, The Grace Year will stay with you for years to come.

The instant New York Times bestseller, a speculative YA thriller in the vein of The Hunger Games and The Power, now in trade paperback.

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

In Garner County, girls are 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.

Tierney James dreams of a better life—but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that there’s more to fear about the grace year than the brutal elements and the poachers in the woods.

Their greatest threat may very well be each other.

With sharp prose and gritty realism, Kim Liggett's 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.
