Review: Grace Doll


Grace Doll

Grace Doll
By:  Jennifer Laurens
Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing
Release Date: August 20th, 2012
Pages: 220
Source: Paperback received from publisher (Thank you!)



Goodreads Synopsis: 


Grace Doll had everything a girl could want: Fame. Fortune. Beauty.

Everything except, of course, her freedom. So when a powerful movie producer forces an experimental treatment on Grace--one that's purported to make beauty immortal--she stages her own death to escape him.

With the help of trusted friends, Grace slips into hiding. She's forever flawless, forever young and forever pursued by her past.

But when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, holding the key to a life she thought she'd left behind, Grace must decide between the safety she's known... and embracing the role she was born to play. 



My Thoughts: 



I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard about this book.  I really thought it was going to be something that I hated.  But boy was I wrong.  This book was more then a pretty cover and a story that makes you keeps going and wanting more.  It was a tale, a tale about a girls journey that makes her survive.  When I read the first couple chapters I was very thrown back with what was happening on the pages.  I didn't know that this was going to happen.  But then the remarkable happened.  She is given a second chance!  

You meet Grace Doll.  She has everything you think that you would want in a life.  Fame, Beauty, and money.  And best of all a man that can't keep his hands off of her.  But that is what is trapping her in this life.  The man that owns her, yes own her won't let her go.  He keeps her around for his needs and not hers.  

When this was all happening on the pages, I found myself yelling at the book for her just to get up and leave.  I mean that is what I would do.  I understand every situation is different, but I was really waiting for her to just pick up and leave.

But the book was a lot more then a tale about a girl that was kept against her will to please the man that owns her.  It was about being empowered.  It was about a girls journey from girl to women and her life.  It was beyond a good book.  I am so happy that I had the pleasure in being involved in the Blog tour for this amazing book.  Jennifer did an amazing job putting this very awkward world to life.  If all of her books are as great as this one, I need to find them all and read them right now!!!!!



My Rating: 


I am giving this book a 5 out 5 stars!!!!  Yes, it was really that good!

    I type of have the same sensation with Shush, Shush. I really really like the sequence, but I still haven't gotten to the last two guides, but simultaneously I am not actually in a hurry to either.
