There's no one quite like Grace, the irrepressible girl whose imagination always works overtime. The widely popular heroine of Amazing Grace (an ALA Notable and Reading Rainbow selection) now makes her second appearance in an illustrated chapter book.

School's started again, and there's a new girl in her class who makes Grace feel jealous. When the teacher assigns them to work together on the upcoming school play, Grace isn't sure what to expect. Meanwhile she is still worried that her mother might remarry, but she also learns how it feels to lose someone forever. And it looks as if a friend might have to move away, while a new friend is about to be gained. As always, Grace bravely meets these changes head-on, while also managing to find her way onstage for another exciting dramatic performance!

Illustrated by June Allan.
