Elizabeth Scott has proved herself with this novel. While she has mastered the art of the cutesy romance YA novels, she has also ventured out and shown to the world that she is not just another romance writer.
Grace was a powerful novel, packed into very few pages. That's because she didn't waste time; Scott jumped right into an emotional story and made readers think of a life outside of our own. The world she created, while vague, still seemed very real and very possible. The characters were believable, and readers could sympathize.
This novel was very short, easily read in one sitting. But the emotion and power brought with it will last for awhile after finishing. I do enjoy Elizabeth Scott's work, and I was skeptical about reading this simply because it was so different. However, it was not disappointing in the slightest.
