Meet Just Grace, one of four Graces in her third grade class. To distinguish them their teacher calls them Grace W., Grace F. (the Big Meanie), Gracie, and Just Grace. Grace tries to explain that she wants to be called Grace not “Just Grace”, but her teacher isn’t listening. Just Grace has unique talents. One is her special super power to tell when people are unhappy and she always does something to make them feel better. The second talent is drawing comics to make herself feel better. Her first super power gets her in lots of trouble when she tries to cheer up her next-door neighbor, Mrs. Luther, who is sad because she accidentally falls on her beloved cat. Read and find out what happens when Just Grace sends postcards from the cat to cheer up Mrs. Luther at the same time Mrs. Luther’s scared cat goes missing.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards Program, 2009-2010)
