Grace Doll by Jennifer Laurens
Grace Doll had everything a girl could want: Fame. Fortune. Beauty.
Everything except, of course, her freedom. So when a powerful movie producer forces an experimental treatment on Grace--one that's purported to make beauty immortal--she stages her own death to escape him.
With the help of trusted friends, Grace slips into hiding. She's forever flawless, forever young and forever pursued by her past.
But when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, holding the key to a life she thought she'd left behind, Grace must decide between the safety she's known... and embracing the role she was born to play.
About the Author:
I write YA books. Whatever my heart desires, I write. I don't have someone over my shoulder, in some office somewhere telling me what I can and cannot write. Or should and shouldn't write. I listen to my heart, the center of my muse, and trust my instincts.
I've written since junior high school. An only child, I grew up writing big stories about big families. I also write YA under the name of JM Warwick. My hometown of Palos Verdes, California figures in much of my work, as does my current home of Pleasant Grove, Utah and other favorite places. I love to travel.
They say "write what you know" and I do. I am a mother, I have six children, five cats and a huge doberman/dane dog. I have a supportive husband and we've been married 25 years. Our lives, though challenging with a handicapped child who has autism, are centered in our family.
My life experiences have worked into all of my novels. Some more heavily than others, but parts of me are in each story. I love stories rich in family drama, where family members overcome obstacles through love and miracles.
I really enjoyed Grace Doll by Jennifer Laurens. It was an easy to read story and had interesting characters.
Grace Doll was spotted at the age of 13 by Rufus Solomon a movie producer. He said she was a woman in a child’s body. He talked her parents into letting him take her and she never saw her parents again. They died 2 months later in a house fire. He later married Grace.
Grace had everything, she was beautiful, had fame, and money; but Rufus was very controlling and Grace was afraid of him most of the time. The only people that Grace could talk to were her makeup artist Jonathan and Oscar her personal assistant. They knew that she was not in a good relationship and vowed to get her out of it. One night Rufus hired a scientist to come over and inject her and himself with an experimental treatment that would keep her young forever. That very same night the house she lived in started on fire. Jonathan and Oscar had come to her rescue – they helped her escape and found a place for her to go into hiding. Everyone thought that she had died in the fire. That was everyone but Rufus – who still searched for her.
You will need to read this book to find out if Rufus ever finds Grace? What happened to Jonathan and Oscar? Did the treatment work? I am sure you will enjoy this story as much as I did.
