Summary: Goodreads

Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

Told in spare, powerful prose by acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they've reached the final page.

I read Living Dead Girl one evening and was shocked by topic and depth of understanding in this author's writing. She took a very short book and pulled at my heartstrings so quickly. I felt like I was gasping for air. Crying, screaming and praying for the protagonist in the story. I can't wait to see what Grace will hold for me...(Elizabeth Scott rocks).

Curlypow here: 'Living Dead Girl' was one of the best and worst books I have read. If 'Grace' is even half as compelling, it will be worth the read.
