Grace by Elizabeth Scott

Genre: YA Realistic

Publisher: Dutton (Penguin)

Release Date: 2010

Goodreads Synopsis:

Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

Told in spare, powerful prose by acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they’ve reached the final page.


“He touches my arm and when I flinch, he lets out a little sigh. ‘That’s exactly what Mary did when I told her the story.’” (Hardback, pg. 166)
