Middle School Age
Gorgeous teen superstar Grace Kincaid has it all- an electric smile, million-dollar endorsement deals, and blond cover-girl looks. But what happens when America’s “It” girl doesn’t want “It” anymore? With the paparazzi stalking her every move, Grace quietly slips out of a TEEN PEOPLE photo shoot, ducks the press, and call s her mom from the boiler room of the fabled USTA National Tennis Center. And right there, in her custom-made Nike warm-ups, tears streaming down her face, Grace says the three magic words that her mom told her she could say anytime, anytime this whole crazy life wasn’t fun anymore. Three simple words-and her new life begins. For the hottest girl on the planet, life’s about to change. Grace gets a make-under, a new identity, and a new life in a rugged little town on the edge of nowhere, population 813 (including one cute boy: one very cute boy). Megan Shull’s AMAZING GRACE will grab you from the first paragraph (go ahead, read it!) and keep you reading till its satisfying, transporting-shhhh-happy ending. A sparkling new voice in teen fiction.
We meet the FIRST Wednesday of every month in the lower level of the library to discuss the book of the month from 6:30-7:30pm. All interested young people in grades 6-8 (not young adults, but not children, hence TWEENS) are welcome. Refreshments are served.
