“Liggett combines a dystopian society with a horrific survivor story and a dark fairy tale in The Grace Year. Young girls are believed to be magic, so they are forced into exile for their 16th year in order to release their powers. After their year away, they are expected to come back ready for a docile home life. But not all of them come home alive, and many come home changed. Liggett’s story is haunting and lyrical, an intriguing page-turner filled with love, brutality, violence, and hope.”
— Scott Lange, The Bookman, Grand Haven, MI

Staff Reviews

Woah, get ready to have everything knocked out of you with this brutal, fierce tale of girls being sent off to survive their 16th year to purge themselves of their magic. The Grace Year's echoing cry will pierce clean through you to stress how essential it is that girls and women lift each other up and the dangers that happen when we fail to do so.

— Julie Jarema
