Grace loves cats. She also loves taking pictures of cats and drawing Not-So Super comics. She doesn’t like Sammy Stringer, a boy in her class. She’s got lots and lots of ideas, and when her neighbor’s cat goes missing, Grace does her best to make Mrs. Luther feel less lonely. But as the mystery of the missing cat continues, Grace’s well-intentioned plan backfires, and she finds herself in a bit of trouble. Maybe, just maybe, Sammy Stringer will help her through.

Review quote

The kids come alive in the story, and Harper enhances the comical goings-on with sparkling cartoon sketches. Give this to...anyone looking for a funny book.
Booklist, ALA, Starred Review Just Grace--so named because she is the fourth Grace in her classroom--is an engaging and empathetic little girl who enjoys drawing, helping others and making lists. . . . An appealing chapter book with just a hint of mystery for middle-grade girls.
Kirkus Reviews Grace's spirited annotated drawings and her inimitable narrative's arrangement into brief vignettes makes this a good choice for kids just beginning to tackle chapter books.
Publishers Weekly "This charming book [is] written in an authentic young voice...just delightful fun...very appealing chick lit lite..." - Vicki's Bookshelf Midwest Book Review

Our customer reviews

Grace, who earned the nickname of Just Grace in school where there are six girls named Grace, loves cats, taking pictures of cats, and drawing Not So Super comics. She dislikes Sammy Stringer, who delivers papers and picks his nose. She and her best friend have lots and lots of big ideas, so when Mrs. Luther's cat disappears, they send postcards to cheer her up. But even the best plans backfire sometimes, and soon Grace finds herself in trouble. Grace is a hilarious young protagonist who comes up with ideas that are sure to make anyone smile. The characters in this book stay true to childhood, and looking back at my elementary school experiences, I'm sure that almost everyone will be able to relate to Grace and her friends. Fans of the JUNIE B. JONES and AMBER BROWN series are sure to love JUST GRACE.show more
