Description

The girl "who should easily find a place in the pantheon of precocious third graders" returns! From the author of the Next Best Junior Chef books (School Library Journal). In this seventh installment in the Just Grace series, any day now Grace's best friend in the whole world, Mimi, is going to be getting a brand-new sister. Grace is really excited, plus nervous, plus worried, plus happy all mixed together. But both Grace and Mimi are in for a surprise when they find out that Mimi's family is not adopting a brand-new sister—and instead she is getting a brand-new brother. (Oh, brother!) And to heighten the excitement even further, Grace is in for another big surprise! Praise for the Just Grace series "The kids come alive in the story, and Harper . . . enhances the comical goings-on with sparkling cartoon sketches. Equally delightful is the wry voice of energetic Just Grace, who never misses an opportunity to point out the injustices life has dealt her. She's a hero through and through."—Booklist (starred review) "Fans of Amber Brown, Clementine, and Judy Moody will love her."—School Library Journal "Her casual language, cheeky attitude and punchy delivery are spot-on."—Bookpage "Grace's cartoon illustrations and charts enliven the conversational, first-person text."—Kirkus Reviews "Girls who are settling into chapter book series featuring Clementine and Judy Moody will love the fast pace and familiar school and family situations . . . Harper's sketches add interest and break up the text, leaving the new reader time to pause and smile."—Horn Book
