Grace

Publisher: Puffin

Review

Grace has been brought up in a religious sect and has to obey the strict rules set by the church elders. She must keep her hair long and tied up, she must never talk to anyone who isn't a part of her community and she must never question the elders.

Her parents, especially her father, have always encouraged her to ask questions but this causes problems with the elders and leads to her father being expelled from the church.

Grace's quest to find her father and reunite her family is moving and funny in this clever insight into life in a religious sect with wider connotations to the outside world.
