    First, a big thank you to Linda Kage for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed The Color of Grace.

    Review + Author Interview @ Say It With Books blog5 out of 5 stars for THE COLOR OF GRACE by Linda Kage. This book is very heartwarming, touching and a light read. I enjoyed every bit of it. As you can see, I only read the book for a day, or maybe less than a day, because I can't seem to stop turning the pages. :-)Okay let me tell you first why the title is THE COLOR OF GRACE.When Grace Indigo transferred to Southeast high school, their project for her Literature class was to answer this: "If yo [...]

    I LOVED IT!! I know, I know, there are some parts that a bit "unsatisfying" such as Ryder's own problem that up until the end didn't really clear, the closure between Todd (I wanna see him suffer, damn it!) and Grace, plus the end for Kiery? Yep, that bitch needs to suffer. This book is surprisingly good for YA. Even though the basic plot is pretty much predictable and cliche, yet I find myself in tears when I read the scene where Grace and her mum embracing each other. It's easy to close your e [...]

    Why do parents live to ruin your life?

Grace is not happy about leaving her friends to attend a rival school, but she is excited about the prospect of having a real live father for the first time in he [...]

    From the very beginning of this novel I found myself lost in the imagery that Kage so masterfully created. She used it to create a phenomenal backdrop and surreal descriptions for her story. She also brings the symbolism of color in both art and literature to the forefront of her descriptions and the story itself. These all come together seamlessly to create a story that you get completely lost in.The characters become so real that you cannot help but giggle along with them, and your heart goes [...]

    I'm still trying to figure out exactly how I feel about this book. the writing is amazing, Linda Kage does a wonderful job at painting pictures so vivid you feel as if you're in the book and in all honesty I adored the characters. But I struggled with them too They're teenagers, which means I've come to expect a few things out of the mouths of teenagers especially teenage boys! This book was a solid 3.5 star read for me and would have been a 4 had it not been for the one thing I know teenage boy [...]

    "I'm never one, distinct color but a dichotomy of dark and bright. The hues follow me, reflecting my mood, displaying every tone and shade I feel. I can breathe in red and exhale blue, or swim in green and dry as a rainbow. It all depends on how I choose to react to every shadow and light beam headed my way."I hadn't heard of this book until the author asked me to review it and I really did jumped at the chance to read it because I never have enough contemporary romances books for review. The Co [...]

    The Color of Grace is a heart-gripping love story. Linda Kage always touches my heart with laughter and tears in her novels. Kage became one of my favorite authors when I read her first YA Romance novel The Stillburrow Crush. Kage is an awesome, talented gifted writer. I'm always amazed at the way she can quickly pull me into her story, and have me rooting for her characters from the first page. It’s like I already know the characters and I'm already a part of their story while reading, not on [...]

    Cute story! I really enjoyed this - It's based for the young adult, which was a good change of pace for me. The book starts off with Grace and her BFF Bridget taking pictures of the basketball game for the school yearbook. Grace wasn't in the best of moods. Their team was playing the very team that will soon be Grace's new school's team. Grace had to move a good 23 miles from the only home she's ever loved, all because her mother got re-married. Which was great. She was really happy for her mom [...]

    Linda Kage's The Color of Grace is fabulous! Kage's writing style flows easily and engages readers immediately. Grace is such an endearing character; it's so easy to become wrapped up in her life, her problems, and hopes. The Color of Grace walks readers through Grace's life just as she's about to begin a new one. Her mother just remarried and Grace must transfer to a new school nearby, which is also home to the player Grace embarrassed herself in front of at the last basketball game she attende [...]

    The colour of Grace was an enjoyable, emotional read and I really enjoyed it. I'll be honest I've read a number of indie books to date and only a couple have really stuck out to me as great so I'm always wary starting one but I need not have worried with The colour of Grace (or 'color' to American readers!) It was fabulously written and I was hooked into Grace's world right away. Grace was a lovely character and I enjoyed getting to know her, she's someone I'd love to have as a friend. And I als [...]

    I love Linda Kage's books and since most days I mentally feel 17 I enjoy YA fiction. This is another beautifully written story. It is something that can be recommended to a teenager. However, there are two of my pet hates in it: the obligatory YA/NA fight; and unwillingness to report sexual assault. In this case it questionably wasn't assault but there was still the behaviour of being closed-mouthed, not wanting to "create waves".When an officer arrived at the Yates' house to take our report, I [...]

    I have died and gone to heaven with this book. I am waiting to post the whole review because I think Linda would hate for me to spoil the book when the dadgom cover still hasn't came out. Let's just put it this way. I have Ryder coming in a box to my house, to keep him hidden from Grace because I deem him mine!!!! Let's just put it like this I am forever holding a large portion of my heart open to Linda Kage. As always, a phenomenal writer where the simplicity of her writing takes readers by the [...]

    I thought this was a very well written story that really sucked you into the more serious side of teenage life. Though there are some more adult topics and issues, the author skillfully creates and maintains her characters as realistic teenagers dealing with an adult world. Ryder and Grace have a fun and sweet relationship. Ryder is a sweet guy and a great hero while Grace is a strong and scared girl being tossed into so many unpredictable situations. There were strong emotions all around and ru [...]

    oh young love! my heart flutters just thinking about this truly amazing book. Grace's character is so truthful that i'm pretty sure a lot of girls can relate to. Ryder is one fine and rare breed that's for sure he isn't afraid to be vulnerable and surprisingly haven't lost himself despite having todd and keira as friends. it's a perfectly balanced book! not to mushy that it will overwhelm you too much about the characters' love life but it has a touch of reality and learning to be strong. Anothe [...]

    Loved ItThis was a sweet, deep young adult romance. I'm not a huge fan of young adult romances, but I knew I would love any book written by Linda Kage. I was right. I was surprised by the depth of the plot and writing. I loved it.

    “Hey, where are you going?" His voice, confused yet curious, called after me. "Hey. Why didn't your mother name you Maybe, or We'll see, or What's-Your-Number? That way, we could call our first born Absolutely.” “I was a rule-follower. I obeyed all forms of authority. I had never before encountered a situation where the authority was clearly wrong and I had to stand up for what was right.” "I'm never one, distinct color but a dichotomy of dark and bright. The hues follow me, reflecting m [...]

    This review and more at Sab The Book EaterTo be honest I really didn't expect to enjoy this book that much. The synopsis didn't do much for me and I didn't like the cover either (sorry).

    In the midst of vampires, werewolves, witches, angels, and dystopians, it's sometimes really amazing to find a story where the characters are real, living, and dealing with situations that occur every day in real life, and then watching them work their way through those challenges. Linda Kage's The Color of Grace gave me exactly that. This story wasn't high concept, gimmicky, or following a current trend, and that's exactly what I loved about it.Grace is a regular girl, kinda nerdy, even a littl [...]

    4.5 starsI was looking to read a good contemporary YA, so I thought I would start 'The Color of Grace'. It seemed like it would be cute, but I wasn't sure what to expect. I liked Linda Kage's last YA novel, but it didn't blow me away. But this one? Consider me a huge fan. I started this book at night, and despite how late it got I told myself I would just read another chapter. Needless to say, this kept happening and I found myself reading the final paragraph through bleary eyes at 3 am.I loved [...]

    I really enjoyed this story. I read it in one sitting, stayed up all night to finish it. It definitely pulls you in. I really liked the characters. Grace was a nice character to get to know. She seemed so real. I felt everything she went through, which was A LOT. It seems like the book follows a long time period, but it's really just a few weeks time.I think the scene when Grace first meets Ryder is one of the cutest teenager scenes I've ever read. Ryder was so lovable from that moment. He made [...]

    I was contacted by the author to review this book. After I read the blurb, I thought it sounded interesting and read it. WOW! I was so wrong about this book. The blurb does it NO JUSTICE!! IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THAT!! I read this book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I thought it was just going to be about a girl starting a new school and meeting a new boy but this book was so much more than that!!!
