Description

The show must go on—even if Grace isn't the lead—in this "engaging chapter book" from the author ofthe Next Best Junior Chef books (Booklist). In a starred review, Booklist called the Just Grace series "hilarious" and said, "Give this to . . . anyone looking for a funny book." Grace is a curious and well-meaning third grader who occasionally gets into a little bit of trouble. This time, her class is putting on a play, and Grace is determined to be the star! But things don't work out quite like she planned, and Marta gets the role. Grace is jealous at first, but soon realizes there's more than one way to shine on stage. This is an act that fans of Judy Moody and Clementine surely won't want to miss! 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
