Shelfari edited the description of Saving Grace Saturday, August 1, 2009.
When Grace Stanley’s brother is killed in a car accident just before her junior year of high school, her life is split in two: before and after Matt died. Before, she loved to draw, play lacrosse, laugh, and listen to loud music with her best friends. And after, she doesn’t see much point in anything--not school, not her friends or parents, not herself, and certainly not God. Then along comes Philomena, a mysterious girl who is always popping up unexpectedly . . . and who just might be exactly what Grace needs. Saving Grace is the story of a vulnerable and remarkable girl who is struggling through profound loss, figuring out her faith and her place in the universe--and making plenty of mistakes along the way.
