Grace and Dignity by Laura Grody

Grace and Dignity is a book that is very different than anything I have ever read before. Laura has written a story that is perfect for middle school readers to adults. I loved the way she gets her point across that character counts. This book should be in every library.

According to Milo, rescuing Prince Dignity would be easy: 'On the count of three, we take a running Leap of Faith off Carpe' Diem Cliff, cross the River of Fear in the Raft of Courage, and boom, we're at the Castle of Doom.' 
Princess Grace and Prince Dignity, a royal couple with mystical powers, are set to be crowned king and queen of the magnificent Kingdom of Love. But on the eve of their coronation, disaster strikes, and Grace is told her prince has been murdered. Grief-stricken, the princess reportedly dies of a broken heart, and the shocked kingdom falls into the eager hands of Dignity's unscrupulous cousin, Prince Denial. Months later, however, Grace is found alive with a gap in her memory, a loss of her powers, and a mysterious Pig Latin note suggesting Prince Dignity is very much alive. As she searches for her prince throughout the rundown kingdom, Grace stumbles upon an ancient secret known as 'The Cosmic Source' - a powerful force which promises to revive her mystical powers and lead to an exciting new way of living. But with the crown title 'throne' for a loop, the future of the Kingdom of Love hangs upon the prince's Dignity. Find out if True Love conquers all in this mystical, linguistical tale of 'Grace and Dignity.'

Laura Grody lives in Los Angeles with her True Love. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Radio/TV/Film and a master’s degree in linguistics, both from California State University, Northridge. She speaks a little Italian, Spanish, and French – sometimes all in the same sentence – and has designs on Portuguese and Greek next.
She spent several years in the entertainment industry as an assistant editor on movies such as Love Potion #9, Kalifornia, andWhen a Man Loves a Woman, and as an editor on the independent film Just Write. She also worked on the business side of film with a production company in Beverly Hills. Most recently, she has been working in the world of traditional healthcare, which has inspired her to get certified as a holistic nutrition practitioner/coach so she can help people live healthier lives.
Laura never intended to write a book, but when she found herself wanting to put her many interests in language, linguistics, movies, and the power of the mind all in one place, a story soon emerged. The end result is her first novel, Grace and Dignity.
