There's a new girl who puts Grace's nose out of joint, a production of Sleeping Beauty that aims to be very different, a school bully to contend with, and goodbyes to be said to a friend who moves away. Grace has to adapt to a new member of the family, and learns how it feels to lose someone. And as always, when things change for Grace, she turns to stories for inspiration.
