Graceling by Kristin Cashore

“Here’s a WOW of a book! Seeing half-wild Katsa learn humanity as she battles soldiers, storms, and her own obsessive nature–I HAD to know how it ended!” (Tamora Pierce )

“Katsa and Po are wonderful: They make me want to cheer. Due to a strong heroine, a supportive hero, political intrigue, and action throughout, this is a book I’ll share with my daughter.” -Melissa Marr, author of Wicked Lovely (Melissa Marr )

These are just some of the fantastic reviews for this fantastical herione, Katsa!  I couldn’t put it down! The strong female character, Katsa and Po as a supportive hero is a book that will appeal to both genders!!
