Winter of Grace (Girlfriend Fiction, #10)

Winter of Grace (Girlfriend Fiction, #10) - Kate Constable This book was a bit better than I expected! For a short novel, it packs an awful lot into the pages, so it can feel a little rushed at times. However, I'm still impressed at the nuance the book managed to convey about the exploration of faith, the good and the bad of organised religion (and of organised atheism). The narrator struggles to find a way forward to making her own decisions about belief, in a world where everyone wants to dictate their own dogma to her. She experiences and contemplates both the embraces and the clashes of social justice in faith communities in a way that I think will resonate with social justice-minded teenagers.
