So this happened.
Kirkus Reviews, the prestigious US reviews magazine and website, gave The Graces a starred review. Great, you're thinking. What the hell does that mean, Laure? According to Kirkus, it means this: "The Kirkus Star is one of the most prestigious designations in the book industry. Look for the icon to discover books of exceptional merit." So... that. Excuse me while I firstly hyperventilate and secondly hang this on my wall to stare at during the dark times.
