GBC Review by Sofia S.
Hey GBC! This month’s book is Graceling by Kristin Cashore. We follow Katsa, the niece of the king in the Seven Kingdoms. She is Graced, which means that she has a gift. These “graces” can range from breathing underwater, to being multilingual, to making plants grow. Katsa is graced with the ability to kill.
I liked this book because the characters all have strong feelings toward each other that are written well. Katsa is adamant about not getting to close to people, but loneliness eventually gets the better of her and she has to figure out who she can trust. The romance storyline is integrated into the actual plot without making it a love centric story, which is awesome since the idea of people with super powers is super cool to read about. I would recommend Graceling to girls 10 to 14 years old.
