Following Starring Grace and Encore, Grace! here comes a new Grace story book. Grace's ma is marrying Vincent and they're moving next door -- so there's a new bridesmaid's outfit and a new bedroom for Grace to think about. Grace starts to notice different boy-girl friendships emerging in the gang, and, when bullying and eating problems make an appearance in class, finds herself turning as usual for advice to Nana. Finally, Christmas brings an event that will transform family life for ever...

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. The small girl from the picture book Amazing Grace (1991) and several chapter books, including Encore, Grace! (2003), is older now, and she finds lots of changes at home and at school. Mom remarries, and Grace must get used to her new stepdad and to Mom's having a baby. At school, boys and girls spend less time together as friends, though some connect as couples. The narrative becomes a bit therapeutic as Grace deals with a bully and analyzes why her friend is anorexic. However, as always with the books about this strong, young girl, the real drama is in the reworking of the traditional fairy tales on stage and in her personal life. The book, with occasional, realistic black-and-white drawings, demonstrates, in both pictures and text, that there are plenty of new, positive roles and opportunities in today's diverse families. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2005 Booklist"
