  • Grace

    Morris Gleitzman

    Product Code: AAWVC
    Paperback 9 years +

    Beautifully told by Morris Gleitzman, Grace is a powerful story about a young girl growing up in a cloistered Christian society, where the elders are in charge and individual thinking is discouraged. Life for Grace is very different than that for most people; she can only read the Bible, her hair must remain tied up in a bun and she cannot socialise with 'ungodly' outsiders. It's a controlled life, but Grace's parents, particularly her father, push the boundaries and encourage Grace's inquisitive nature by letting her question things. But one day, her father goes too far, and the events that follow force Grace to question whether her community, which once provided safety and happiness, is as good as she once believed.
