Grace Trey is an eighteen-year-old singer as passionate about her Christian faith as she is her phenomenal, God-given musical talent. Both traits come from her father, one-hit wonder Johnny Tray who found Jesus after losing his chart success two decades ago.

When Grace encounters her own music break of a lifetime, the sudden dive into the "real world" puts her deeper beliefs to the test. Pop superstardom is just within reach but appears to require some spiritual compromise. Will Grace reject her faith, or will she own it?

Grace Unplugged is based on the motion picture of the same name starring AJ Michalka (Super 8) and Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men).

    This book review is going to be a bit revealing about my faith.

    This book review is going to be a bit revealing about my faith. Before picking up this book, and even while I read it, I was struggling. Maybe I still am. I’m a lot like Grace, or as her stage name deems her, Gracie Trey. Oh, sure I’m not a rock star, but I am human. I get caught up in worldly things, sometimes even questioning the existence of God. After all, it’s hard to be an educated college student and still maintain faith in the unseen. I often forget that athough I cannot see God, I can feel him. Very much so. However, when I’m wrapped up in the world, I push those feelings away. I stop praying. I stop going to church. And I stop living like Christ. It’s a bad habit to say the least. Grace gets caught up in her dreams, or what she thinks are her dreams; to be a famous musician. Without asking for God’s guidance, she up and abandons her parents when an opportunity presents itself. Despite leaving without notice, I felt for Grace. Her dad was very controlling and restricting her creativity. While reading this, I was thinking, “yes, Grace. Do it. Leave!” – we’ve all been young and dying for freedom from our parents. However, as the music biz took its toll on her, Grace started living in a way completely against her old standards. Not only that, but her manager (and everyone else at the label) is trying to control her creativity. Just like her dad!
    Through it all, Grace remains distant to God. Blocking out the church that is across from her apartment, ignoring her parents, and tensing up at the mention of her Dad’s religious past. You see, Grace got her ticket to fame from her dad. Her dad was a one-hit-wonder, and taking his hit to a new level, Grace won her way in. However, her dad isn’t happy about this. He is livid to say the least. He knew what fame could do first hand, and being the protective father, he didn’t want to see this for his daughter. Much like his daughter, though, he turned away from God after she left.
    As always, Melody delivers an inspiring story of faith in this novel. My only complaint is the lack of proper editing. I’ve contacted the publisher, author, and the directors of the movie about this. They’ve all responded, apologizing and assuring they are getting it edited again. That being said, it is a great novel and a wonderful story. I can’t wait to watch the movie! I already have the soundtrack and it is just as inspiring.
    Back to my faith, for a moment – Halfway through this novel, I attended an LDS conference called Time Out for Women. Both this book and that conference renewed my faith. The book made me realize how far I was pushing God from my life, while the conference reminded me just how easy it is to come back; he’s already there for me! I’m going to end this review with lyrics from the movie, “Never Let Go”

    Movie

    The movie is so awsome. I had to beg my mom to get it for me thats how much I love the movie. I love the ending. SPOILER AHEAD. In the movie when Grace is 20she is at a concert with her dad. At the beging shes talking to this guy named Chris about her wedding that shes going to have. I knew who her fiancee was going to be since the first day she meant him. Quientent. He is actually the bands manager. So there walking to stage and Graces dad says so my boss is going to be my son in law. Quientent says afraid so. Grace says one big happy family.
