The Lovereading4Kids comment

When eighteen year old Rachel gets a job helping look after a woman with brain damage, she discovers a whole part of herself she’d never explored before. She finds tenderness, compassion and above all, love in this beautifully written and funny novel about growing up.

Synopsis

Finding Grace by Alyssa Brugman

Rachel has just left school and she knows everything. Then she meets the mysterious Mr Preston, who gives her a live-in job looking after Grace - Grace with the grasping sisters, and the box full of unfinished business, Grace who never speaks. Who is Grace? How do the pieces of her world fit together? And what will it all mean for Rachel?
