Graceling by Kristin Cashore

In a world where people are born with a Grace, a special and superior talent, there is a young woman named Katsa who doesn't think her Grace is very special. Unlike others who have a normal Grace (like cooking, agriculture, or the arts), Katsa has the Grace of killing. All her life she has been trained and used as an assassin by her king. On a simple rescue mission Katsa meets Po who is also graced with a skill of his own. As Katsa gets to know him, she is drawn into his personality and his similarities to herself. When they end up on the toughest adventure of their lives, their strength and commitment to their mission and each other will be tested like never before. Reminiscent of Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness series, Graceling pulls you into a world of intrigue and creativity, and introduces you to a boy and girl who find love where they least expect to find it. Check it out at your local branch library. - written by Celia Masterson, age 18
