When her beloved Aunt Grace is found dead on the floor of her bedroom, eleven-year-old Zoe Delaney is convinced it was murder.  Determined to get to the truth of the matter, and with the help of a journal she finds under her aunt’s bed, Zoe sets out to investigate her aunt’s death.  Her covert investigation, however, soon turns up evidence that her aunt, a highly regarded ethics professor at Rhode Island College, might not have been the person Zoe and others thought she was.  Zoe is forced to face the possibility that, rather being an innocent victim, her Aunt Grace may have murdered several people.  

Should she turn her discoveries over to her parents—and the police—or destroy the evidence and save her aunt’s reputation?

Fall From Grace is the perfect title for this pre-teen centered murder mystery. The book follows 11-year-old Zoe through the death of her aunt, delving into her mindset and emotions as she discovers that some secrets are better left untold. I would have LOVED to have read this in middle school and I highly recommend it to any young people who enjoy mystery novels, crime dramas, or just a good dose of psychology.

As a reader, the very first book I've read was THE CLIENT by John Grisham which is a crime mystery novel filled with investigations and court dramas. And I was just 8 years old that time. Needless to say, it was a genre inappropriate in my age. Why am I saying this? Well, because I really wished I found a book like FALL FROM GRACE that time because this one I think is more suited to young people who love the genre I really loved since I was a kid.

The story follows Zoe after the death of her Aunt. Having been the one who discovered the body, Zoe was convinced it was murder and she was set to investigate. But she wasn't prepared to the revelations that soon engulfs her. She might not have really known her aunt at all who has a really good reputation in town.

Like I said above this is perfect for young minds. The writing, the plot points that really mattered seemed taken to consideration so they appeal even to the youngest readers. The development was just in the the right pace, revealing things little by little making it easy to turn the pages with excitement. But even though I said, it seemed written for young people, I couldn't help but enjoy reading it and I'm 25 years old.

Yep, when did I grow old?

The characters were fine. I honestly thought I would be annoyed at Zoe because she's too young right? And she's butting to things she shouldn't but I found her believable and reasonable. Despite her age, her actions seemed realistic even though her mission isn't really for a teen.

Overall, I recommend this to young people who love the genre I loved since I was a kid. :)
