When I was little, I wanted to be, or even be the daughter of, a movie star. Just like every little girl wants to be. I wanted to wear upscale clothes, have all the money in the world, travel all over the planet, and own excessive houses. That’s basically the life Grace has in Grace Happens, by Jan M. Czech.

She was successful in getting her family together. She did it despite the imperfect, and confusing circumstances. Grace made herself important, who teaches a lesson that teens would understand. Without her, the story would not have had a happy
