Just Grace
Booksense Summer Selection 2007
*"The kids come alive in the story, and Harper, the author of several previous books, including the graphic novel "Fashion Kitty "(2005), 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. Give this to fans of "Ann Nagda's Meow Means Mischief "(2003) or anyone looking for a funny book." —"Booklist, " starred review
"Grace is a funny, mischievous protagonist who should easily find a place in the pantheon of precocious third graders. Fans of Amber Brown, Clementine, and Judy Moody will love her." —"School Library Journal
