Audible Editor Reviews

When Grace's father has to leave the church and be estranged from his family because he asks a few too many questions, Grace is worried and upset. With divided loyalties, this young Australian girl attempts to get her father to repent and come back to the fold. But instead of making everything the way it was, Grace's world is suddenly filled with more questions. Without an ounce of condescension, Mary-Anne Fahey warmheartedly portrays 11-year-old Grace's journey in Morris Gleitzman's Grace.

What the Critics Say

"When her father is expelled from their cult-like church for arguing with the elders and is removed from their family home, Grace thinks she's to blame because the elders consider her to be disobedient and disrespectful. After talking it over with God, she sets out to find her father, planning to convince him to be meek and obedient so that he can be reunited with their family and church. Mary-Anne Fahey gives Grace, an Aussie, a believable and engaging child's voice. With warmth and humor she conveys Grace's attempts to understand the church's strict rules while remaining true to her own questioning viewpoint. Gleitzman's book is perfect for family listening and may inspire some lively family discussions on questioning authority." (AudioFile)
