Summary The Grace Year

Summary The Grace Year Kim Liggett ô 4 Summary The Grace Year Read & Download à 104 No one speaks of the grace year It’s forbiddenIn Garner County girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds to drive women mad with jealousy They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac the potent essence of youth of a girl on the edge of womanhood That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year to release their magic into. Look around Kiersten says as she stares me dead in the eyes We are the only Gods here 4 12 stars Wow This book was hard to put down And the ending made me really emotionalThe Grace Year is such an exciting mix of horror survival and the best of YA dystopias from 5 10 years back It really is like a darker feminist version of The Hunger Games I had a really busy week but I looked for every opportunity possible to sit down with this book and get sucked back into this ugly patriarchal world Nothing gets my blood pumping and the pages turning like a heavy dose of infuriating unfairnessThis is one of those rare novels where I think the fictional world actually benefits from some vague world building There is something very sinister and claustrophobic about the tiny oppressive world of Garner County a feeling of wrongness about it a feeling that you never know uite what is lurking beyond its edgesIn the county girls are banished to the wilds during their sixteenth year their Grace Year in order to purge themselves of their dangerous magic This magic is said to be an ability to seduce men lure them to sin and all manner of unsavory things Once out in the wild the girls need to survive the elements evade the poachers who are looking to harvest their body parts and just not kill each other All are easier said than done of course and especially the latter They can call it magicI can call it madnessBut one thing is certainThere is no grace here You can compare this to many other works The Hunger Games and Lord of the Flies being the most obvious but it has a uniue flavour that s all it s own It s dark and gory It s very much a tale of survival against the odds But what is so odd about The Grace Year is that it s about women going wild being jealous viciously hurting each other and yet it somehow manages to be a celebration of women and the ties between them Mothers and daughters Sisters Friends It s uite incredible how Liggett takes these women to their very worst so that we can eventually appreciate them at their bestI loved the whole eatingcannibalism metaphor too How patriarchy works because it forces women into a position where they are enemies and they have to devour one another to get ahead Powerful horrible and all too trueThe only downside is how the characters all seem to default to white The only girls whose physical appearances are described are pale and prone to blushing It s a shame in a book which is otherwise so pro woman and could easily have been remedied by describing characters with different skin coloursBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Kim Liggett ô 4 Summary

Summary The Grace Year Kim Liggett ô 4 Summary The Grace Year Read & Download à 104 The wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage But not all of them will make it home aliveSixteen year old Tierney James dreams of a better life a society that doesn’t pit friend against friend or woman against woman but as her own grace year draws near she uickly realizes that it’s not just the brutal elements they must fear It’s not even the poache. 35 starsThe Grace Year refused to dissipate and hung like a poisonous vapor long after I finished it pervading every corner of my room like a simmering toxin The feeling was a violent plunge encompassing revulsion and sorrow far beyond the personal a sick scorching nausea at humanity s violence against itself since the dawn of time And though the ending was hopeful than grim I felt my anger still brimming and unspent So what s this book about They call it the Grace Year using so innocuous a word to obscure so hideous a truth And no one talks about what happens during the Grace Year About the girls who return with blunt brutal looks a residue of old violence about them Their youth curdled into something ragged and despairing as though life had been leached out of them in aspects impossible to repairTierney James had defined herself as a rebel all her life Had rejected the choices the limits the world gave her But in Garner County women s lives run straight as planks however they try to twist There where women and girls are believed to harbor devilish magical powers that allow them to reach into men s minds and sway them to bend their wills like smiths bend hot iron And because the rumors fell from men s lips the town had good reason to lend it credenceWhen Tierney turns sixteen it is her turn to embark on the Grace Year Banished to an isolated compound the Grace Year Girls have to live on the sharp edge of starvation half mad with their own circling heartsick with the sameness of their days But worse than that even worse than the poachers prowling the edges of their prison smelling their fear like sharks smell blood ready to pounce and devour was a darkness creeping evilly upon the girls senses The fortunate ones don a veil as red as the sins they re supposed to expunge symbolizing a promise for marriage once the Grace Year is over The less fortunate ones have only a life of labor or worse waiting for themIf indeed any of them had even a single day to look forward to Maybe the reason no one speaks of the grace year is because of us How could the men live among us lie with us let us care for their children knowing the horrors we inflict upon one another alone in the wilderness in the dark This is the premise that dramatically sets the stage for The Grace Year and it s the stuff of nightmares The beginning of this book held my eyes rooted to the page The novel however soon changes gear and for a while is primarily involved with the dislocation of Tierney s life during the Grace Year both physical and emotional So submerged and embattled with fatigue and desperation and unable to shake off the sense of being watched of being measured by eyes none of them could see there rose a sensation that Tierney was undoing herself unwinding herself thread by thread rags and tatters falling away from her That s when her narrative voice becomes detached sort of grayish and dullish and faraway seemingThis is echoed multitudinously by the prose rich passages of hallucinogenic accounts and it makes for an uneasy read sometimes For a while every turn of the page felt at least to me like pressing forward through an endless briar patch Fortunately the author doesn t overextend herself awfully much and tackling a few extra pages of such lavishly descriptive prose as filtered through Tierney s evocative voice is a meager price to pay for a such a bold affecting readThere are plenty of enjoyable set pieces here and I m genuinely in awe of how the author craftily spins moldy malignant straw into warm and shimmering goldMisogyny is of course the narrative s destructive force both deeply antiuated and too immediate to dismiss The story emphasizes the brittleness of a male dominated society that wears fear and ignorance the way most men wear their clothes and strives relentlessly to stiffen female individuality into silence It also underscores how corrosive to the soul it is grow up as a young woman saddled with generations of toxic abusive patriarchal demons Kim is so skilled an author and the case she makes is so dramatically compelling and so horrifyingly substantiated that the book never seems overbearingly didacticThe author also makes no bones about the fact that the real monsters are not the women who are cruel to one another in order to fit into a male space it s the men who use women to their benefit pitting them into competition turning them against each other with a bright horrible relish to fight for a token role Internalized misogyny is an idea that runs deep in the veins of the novel and the author confronts it with brilliance and verve We hurt each other because it s the only way we re permitted to show our anger When our choices are taken from us the fire builds within Sometimes I feel like we might burn down the world to cindery bits with our love our rage and everything in between If I had to point out a few other uibbles it would be that the emerging love story is not only handled unevenly overall in the book but I m not sure it s altogether convincing In fact it winds up being window dressing than anything else and the novel could have done without The unwieldy list of characters also doesn t meld well with the frenetic style there is not really enough time to spend with each of them and their characterization is so flimsy that they easily disappear into the cracks of the storyThat said The Grace Year is a pretty solid read so specific and yet so universal ko fi blog twitter tumblr
