written and illustrated by Charise Mericle Harper. |

Meet third-grader Grace Stewart, who gets stuck with the name "Just Grace" when she tries to distinguish herself from the three other Graces in her class. Grace is plenty different, though.

Join Just Grace as she deals with a missing cat, a new neighbor, and more in this delightfully funny three-book compilation.
