I am a big fan of Just Grace. Despite her efforts to shed the "Just" part of her name, that extra identifier really fits. In this second book in the Just Grace series, Grace deals with change and gets to work on her powers of empathy. As she navigates changes with her grandmother and with her best friend, Mimi, we see how she is maturing and learning to adapt. There are also some great language project ideas demonstrated by the kids in the book. Reading this book reminds me of what it was like to be a 7-year-old and learning to be more independent and responsible. Would make a fun classroom readaloud for early elementary grades. If you like Judy Moody, you will love Just Grace!

Things are still difficult for Grace. There are four Graces in her class and her teacher refuses to call her anything except "Just Grace". One of the other Graces is still a big meany and seems to enjoy taunting her. But when Grace finds out that she is going to miss school to visit her grandmother, she is initially excited that she will get to escape these troubles. That is until an interesting new boy who can walk on his hands moves in next door to her best friend and next door neighbour Mimi. Now Grace is worried that her absences will lead to Mimi not being her best friend. Can Grace figure out a way to make it all better?

This second novel in the Just Grace series is a nice story of navigating friendships in late primary. Grace works through her problems, and realizes that they weren't as bad as she imagined and that others may have it just as rough as she does, thus developing her empathy super power.

A lovely early chapter book addition for the primary or special education classroom.
