An exciting new story in the bestselling Willow Falls series from Wendy Mass!Angelina D'Angelo has left town to see the world. It's now Grace's turn to use her magic to protect the people of Willow Falls, and she is up to the challenge. This is her destiny, after all. But destiny is a funny thing-it doesn't always behave the way you'd expect it to. Mysterious postcards from Angelina begin showing up in the mail, Grace's parents are freaking out with worry, and something BIG is coming to town that will affect everybody who lives there. But all Grace is powerful enough to do is turn leftover meatloaf into pizza. Fortunately, she's not alone. She has Team Grace on her side! Amanda, Leo, Rory, Tara, David, and Connor know a thing or two about magic and how it works. But none of them are prepared for what's coming, and none of them know how to stop it. Life in Willow Falls is about to change forever.

With “The Last Present” being the original ending for the Willow Falls series, the publishing of “Graceful” was quite a wonderful surprise. It wasn’t right to end it at just that, so Wendy Mass came out with a stunningly beautiful and emotion filled novel to wrap up the series. And she was right to do so, “Graceful” became one of my favourite non-cliche magical novels ever to be read, as I’m sure it was for many others. I’m not going to spoil too much, but let’s just say that it was unique apart from the previous books in the Willow Falls series and certainly had some interesting twists to it. @WordfulReviews of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

As a Wendy Mass enthusiast, I was more than pleased with how she decided to end off the Willow Falls series after the publishing of 4 extremely well-written books. While reading “Graceful”, I got the chance to see how far the characters have developed, which I’d say is one of Wendy Mass’s greatest strengths as an author. The amount of thought and effort that has been put into ending off this series is clearly visible in the constantly thickening, suspenseful plot, descriptive words, and carefully planned out details. Although “Graceful”, along with the other Willow Falls books, is fictional, it’s still incredibly relatable on a much broader social/personal level beyond the norm. Putting their magic-like powers aside, not only are these characters the same age of the vast majority of readers which makes it easier to feel closer to them, but it becomes incredibly easy to form personal connections as the reader most likely feels like they’re in the same position as the characters due to their age-appropriate personalities and feelings. For instance, Tara’s family kept moving from one area to another to avoid Angelina D’Angelo, making it difficult for Tara to settle and form long-term friendships. Overall, I absolutely enjoyed reading the last book of the Willow Falls series and if you’ve read the latest novel of this series, this book would also be appealing to you as it would be a great way to end off the read. Rating: 4/5
