Book Review - Grace Unplugged
About the Book
Grace Trey is an 18 year old singer as passionate about her Christian faith as she is her phenomenal, God-given musical talent. Both traits come from her father, one hit wonder Johnny Trey who found Jesus after losing his chart success two decades ago.
When Grace encounters her own music break of a lifetime, the sudden dive into the "real world" puts her deeper beliefs to the test. Pop superstardom is just within reach but appears to require some spiritual compromise. Will Grace reject her faith, or will she own it?
Grace Unplugged is based on the motion picture of the same name starring AJ Michalka (Super 8) and Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men) with performances by award-winning artists Chris Tomlin and Jamie Grace.

My Take on the Book
This is a story that shows the faith of one girl and as in many of us this faith is challenged in many ways as she pushed to achieve her dreams. I appreciated the character in this book and how she embraces life fully. While the book is definitely full of highs and lows, Grace stay true to her faith and it is that for me which in the end makes this book a very strong one that I think any spiritual person will appreciate. You may notice that I say spiritual and not Christian. I say this because the message within this story, I believe, transcends one religion and talks about faith in general and how you must keep hold of this faith no matter what. All-in-all this was a great book that I encourage all to read!
