    1. So here we have it Cath Crowley s first novel, The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain, published in 2004 This is where the magic began This is what started the almost decade long journey to the penultimate at this point in time, anyway Graffiti Moon So what is this book like Is it something to be gaped at, celebrated and preserved for all time like Shakespeare s House Or is it a piece of dirty laundry that Cath Crowley wished she could hide in the back of her drawer of smalls and rather you d not [...]


    2. ALYCE Gracie s got brown hair, like me She s about the same height, too People notice her I think it s her voice It s always louder than you expect and covered with laughter.I was surprised when she said she didn t want to work with me I don t know Gracie very well, but I remember once in Year 3 she gave me an invitation to her party She spelt my name right Everyone always spells it with an i , even the teachers Ever since then I thought she would be nice I never thought she d look at me like I [...]


    3. I love reading debut novels They re like the origins story of my superheroes authors Cath Crowley wrote two of my favorite reads last year A Little Wanting Song and Graffiti Moon In her debut novel, The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain, you see the beginning of her style with multiple, alternating points of view of irresistible characters.First, you have Gracie Kickass soccer superstar on an all boys team The problem isn t that she knows this, the problem is she knows it and lords her supremacy [...]


    4. Read in one night Gracie is a heroine hard to love at the beginning, but she definitely grows and matures throughout the book This is not only her story, but also her parents , her friends and sometimes her enemies Cath Crowley shows her talent with words in her debut maybe not as colourfully as in Graffiti Moon and there were lots of quotes I wanted to write down and remember As I didn t have a pen on me, I ll now try to hunt them down here I can t deny I expected a bit from this book it s Cat [...]


    5. Read as part of the GracieFaltrainReadalong with Diem and Rachel So glad I finally read this, Gracie is awesome Now onto book 2


    6. Oh dude, I enjoyed this SO much D It was just so wonderfully Australian, and had the feel of so many wonderful kids TV shows I grew up watching I really think the ABC should jump on the Gracie Faltrain wagon asap I d watch that The style was fun as well, with loads of different narrators sometimes they d be back and forth ing with just one line each, like a conversation Which was odd when you think about it, like some parts were written privately and some were shared around But it was fun, so wh [...]


    7. There is something pretty special about reading the debut novel of one of your favourite authors, it s almost like you re getting a glimpse at the roots of their talent you can see where everything that come after has stemmed from and how much they ve grown as a writer And Gracie Faltrain is no exception I was almost giddy with infatuation, just getting to read Cath s first published novel with the knowledge of what her writing style and execution has evolved into.Gracie is the only girl on an a [...]


    8. Review of all three books The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain , Gracie Faltrain Takes Control and Gracie Faltrain Gets it Right.World, meet Gracie Faltrain She s in year 10, is her school s soccer superstar and the renegade girl who plays on the boy s team Gracie is a phenomenal player, because when she s on the field she grows wings and never misses a goal But she plays for herself She doesn t pass or share the glory when Gracie Faltrain plays, she plays to win, and nobody better get in her w [...]


    9. Tell me again why this isn t published in the US Seems like it would do well A funny, charming novel that is actually about sports and family Good stuff Also, this is the sort of book I d hoped Catching Jordan would be.


    10. I enjoyed this read but Cath Crowley s WORDS IN DEEP BLUE is my all time favorite book, and in comparison, I just couldn t LOVE this novel Maybe, for me, nothing will live up to her latest book


    11. After feeling a little disappointed by Graffiti Moon, I was pleased to spot The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain in my local library, because I had enjoyed Cath Crowley s style while not really appreciating the subject matter of Graffiti Moon as much as I could Luckily, The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain is far my sort of book, combining as it does my favoured realistic YA subjects of friendship, family and a smidge of romance with a sport based plot The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain is [...]


    12. My mum gave me this book at least a year ago She and my sister had both read it some time before and they thought, since I am now a teenager, that I would be interested At the time I had just finished reading The Hunger Games triliogy, and looking at the cover a girl playing soccer I thought, I m never going to read thisever But I forgot Don t judge a book by it s coverever So I was suprised, after the first couple of pages yes, I did start reading it a break from my paranormal dystopian reading [...]


    13. Gracie Faltrain is a soccer star She knows it, and she likes to remind her male teammates whenever she gets a chance Gracie is not a team player, and the guys have started to resent her for it Toss in some friendship and romantic troubles, and her father s emotional absence, and Gracie s life kind of sucks.My favorite part of this book was undoubtedly the way Crowley showed every side of Gracie She isn t a perfect person in fact, a lot of the bad things that happen to her are sort of her fault T [...]


    14. DNF at page 35.I really wanted to like this book I thought it was going to be like Dairy Queen.It felt like a mess There were 345,634,124 different POVs, and it leaped wildly about from POV to POV with no rhyme or rhythm I thought from the title and description that it was about Gracie Faltrain, but it s apparently about ten million random people whom I don t give a fuck about as well And they spend most of their POVs navel gazing And pondering I also didn t like Gracie from what I did see of he [...]


    15. I love the series The last one was the best I just keep reading them becasue i love soccer and would love to play for the matlidas








    16. So I found this book at the back of my self, didn t have much to read and decided to re read it I had fond memories reading it as a pre teen wanting to play Soccer and be just like Gracie Surprisingly enough, I still really enjoyed it Keeping in mind this is written for younger readers, I actually found to have no real complaints Don t get me wrong, I m not going to continue with the series or anything But as a nice little trip to memory lane, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
