Unbecoming should appeal to those readers who enjoy fiction with deeply developed complex characters. Protagonist and narrator Grace draws readers into her life of thievery and lies which has made her the person she is today. Scherm upends the usual coming of age story by showing a deflection point, a theft, and how that led Grace on a path toward hiding her identity rather than becoming a mature adult. I was delighted with Scherm’s clever prose and adroit character development. Those readers interested in finding a new literary voice should consider picking up this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Unbecoming from amazon.com.
