When her father is expelled from their cult-like church for arguing with the elders and is removed from their family home, Grace thinks she's to blame because the elders consider her to be disobedient and disrespectful. After talking it over with God, she sets out to find her father, planning to convince him to be meek and obedient so that he can be reunited with their family and church. Mary-Anne Fahey gives Grace, an Aussie, a believable and engaging child's voice. With warmth and humor she conveys Grace's attempts to understand the church’s strict rules while remaining true to her own questioning viewpoint. Gleitzman's book is perfect for family listening and may inspire some lively family discussions on questioning authority. C.R.A. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
