I have to say that the wait for Good Graces was definitely worth it. I was able to read a galley of the book and was blown away at how good it was. I absolutely loved Whistling in the Dark and was anxiously awaiting the sequel . When reading Whistling in the Dark I felt like I was transported in time and that I became part of the O'Malley sisters lives. To be able to revisit these girls again in Good Graces was a gift that Kagen delivered with a giant bow. This is by far one of the greatest sequels ever written. I read nearly 100 books a year and there are very few books that resonate with me long after I read them. In that way, this book is a rare gem. The dialogue is spot on, being both serious and funny in perfect unison. You find yourself lost in the book due to the beautifully woven and intricate plot. You crave more and are not disappointed. Good Graces is the type of story that can only be written by an author that is authentic and truly gifted. Kagen has proven again that she deserves to be on the National Best Sellers List. This is a book that cannot be missed. It is everything that I hoped it would be and more. I look forward to seeing what else Kagen can dream up. She is truly one of the best authors out there. Preorder this book now, you will not be disappointed. If you have not read Whistling in the Dark make sure to get it and read it while you wait for Good Graces!!!

Ellen Stutzman "Good Graces" by Lesley Kagen - I just spent the better part of today reunited with dear friends, living in the Washington Park area of Milwuakee, WI. in the 1960s. The unforgetable characters & clever twists of plot kept me reading voraciously...not wanting to miss a thing. The ending was...Oh, you will have to read "Good Graces" to find out for yourselves!! This sequel to "Whistling in the Dark" reminds me of the imagination at work in a 12 year old girl's mind, as a long, hot & humid summer stretches out before her. An added plus is the familiar places in the town where I grew up. Lesley, you never dissapoint me!
