Read an Excerpt


My real name is Grace, and if that was your real name then you would think that if someone wanted your attention they would shout “Grace!” but that is not what happens for me. I am not a usual person, but you can’t tell that by just looking at me, because most of my unusualness is pretty much on the inside. My outside wrapping looks like any other girl’s, except I don’t wear very much pink because that is definitely not one of my favorite colors. Having four girls named Grace in the same class, and not letting any of them use the name Grace. Instead, calling them Grace W., Gracie, Grace F. (secretly named the Big Meanie by me, because that is what she is), and Just Grace. The Just Grace name probably being the most dumb name in the whole world ever, which is especially bad and sad because that’s the one that is mine.
Thinking that someone is 100 percent disgusting and not likable, and then having something happen that changes your mind a little bit so that the gross disgusting feeling is almost all gone, even when you have to stand right next to him and say, “Hi, Sammy.” Having a little superpower that almost no one knows about. Empathy power is the power to feel someone else’s sadness, and then to try to make that sadness go away. It’s not an easy power to have. I know, because I have it.

It still tasted good, though!

Girls who draw comics, because mostly that’s a boy thing, though it just doesn’t make any sense why it would be that way. Butterfly Lady can make you feel better just by wrapping you in her big beautiful wings.
Living next door to your most perfect friend in the whole world. And having that friend be someone as great as Mimi.
Having a cool French flight attendant named Augustine Dupre living right in your very own basement. But living in a great apartment that your dad made, not in the scary-spider part next to the furnace.

Hopefully they will never meet!

My 7y.o. second grader (who periodically throws out statements such as "I hate reading!"), has absolutely loved this series. I actually had to purchase a book light for her because she wanted to read in bed, a first for her! I have not yet read any of the books with her, but her endorsement means a lot so I think the books must be fabulous!

This is a very smart, and realistic look at life from a third grader's point of view. I especially liked Grace's empathy power. Grace learns that things are not always what we think they are and neither are people. Good read. Reviewed by Cherese Vines

This book is about a girl named Grace and her best friend Mimi. When two boys moved in next door Mimi's and Grace's friendship starts going downhill! Mimi started being good friends with the boys, while Grace absolutely hated them. When Grace went out of town to help her grandma move into an apartment, Mimi was growing even closer to the boys. Ever since Grace came back from helping her grandma, when she invited Mimi somewhere the boys had to come too. Once she went back to school they were having book reports, and they had already picked partners! Mimi and the boys were in a group and Grace was partnered up with "The Big Meany". What's going to happen next? Will the two boys ruin Grace's and Mimi's friendship? I recommend this book to girls, because it talks a lot about things girls enjoy and what problems they have, like best friends. If you like books that have funny pictures, and sayings, you'll love this book! I hope you have an awesome time reading "Still Just Grace." I did! Review by: Rachel Braun

It was not the best book. Some parts are boring, others not. I would recomend it for 8 to 10 year olds.
