The Color of Grace

Linda Kage
Contemporary Romance
Young Adult

"I didn't exactly have a mirror handy to see if I'd flushed myself from a brunette into a redhead."

Grace doesn't want to move to a new town or a new school.  Even if the very cute Ryder Yates who once flirted with her goes there.  Perhaps especially because he goes there.  But with her mother remarried, she doesn't have a choice.  Perhaps it won't be so bad trying to make new friends, even if Ryder no longer seems interested.  Or perhaps it will be worse.  With a new set of kids at school, Grace must navigate her new life and her new family.  And when things go from bad to worse, who will she be able to turn to?  And what will she find out about the true colors of herself and others?

My Opinion: I thought this was a very well written story that really sucked you into the more serious side of teenage life.  Though there are some more adult topics and issues, the author skillfully creates and maintains her characters as realistic teenagers dealing with an adult world.  Ryder and Grace have a fun and sweet relationship.  Ryder is a sweet guy and a great hero while Grace is a strong and scared girl being tossed into so many unpredictable situations.  There were strong emotions all around and running the full gambit in this one, but I really enjoyed it.  I would recommend this one to any adults that enjoy young adult romance, and perhaps the more mature teens that do as well.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
