Wednesday Books 9/17/2019. New hardcover. in Brand New jacket. Releases 9/17/19. Pre-order today! Store pick: Wow! If I could give this one higher than a 10 I would. I rarely read YA or Dystopian but I am sure glad I read this one. The description of a mashup of Hand Maidís Tale and Lord of the Flies with girls instead of boys is right on. But, it is much more than that. Tierney has always been different and while she doesnít actively rebel against the patriarchal society that rules the area she lives in she also doesnít embrace it like most of the other girls do. She hopes to just get through her grace year and come back and work in the fields (not a treasured position like getting a veil). The book paints almost as bad a picture of what women do to each other as it does of what men do to women. The writing is lyrical and yet Liggett doesnít mince words when she describes the violence that takes place during the grace year and as part of the countyís patriarchal society. Tierney is a powerful main character who suffers immensely in order to stay true to what she believes. There were many times in the book that I wished she had taken a different path for her own sake but the fact that she didnít take the easy way out and that she understood the need to act together was a great lesson. I couldnít envision how Liggett would be able to keep to the storyline and yet still show us hope for the future but she managed it beautifully. This is one of the few books that I would like to read again and again. -Nancy M., store volunteer
