Finding Grace, by Alyssa Brugman

"This book was intriguing - the characters and the book's conflict started the mysteries that the caregiver, Rachael, finds out (about). Its definitely going to get you to flip the pages with rapid speed! The main character lacked passion - and in my opinion passion is a great factor. Reviewed by Haejin, Jamestown Middle School

Rachel is just starting college when a local attorney who met her during graduation hires her to care for Grace, his former coworker and friend, who has suffered brain damage. The teen approaches the job with her typical perfectionism, but without much compassion. However, as Rachel begins to unfold and piece together Grace's past, she discovers a woman who once lived and loved. As Rachel opens herself up to a new world of experiences, she is forced to admit that she doesn't know everything. Brugman has written a novel that is both funny and heart-wrenching. ~ Booklist Magazine
