Just Grace and the Terrible Tutu
Shared in Network This resource is rare in the Library. This entire series focuses instead on unique problems that Grace is able to overcome using her own ingenuity. Even when the occasional help of a trusted adult is needed, Grace seeks that person's assistance, and leads everyone around her to her desired outcome. Grace doesn't worry about whether she's popular or not, and that is such a refreshing thing to see in a series like this. Overall, I think reading this series really requires you to start at the beginning. It's been a while since I read the 5th book, and there were characters whose significance to the series I had forgotten.
But fans of the series won't be disappointed by this latest book, and it's a series I really recommend to anyone looking for strong female characters who have a positive impact on the world around them.

All of this and the other spectacular woes of being an eight year old with an incredible super power is exactly what is happening in Grace's life during Just Grace and the Terrible Tutu.
Being that this is the sixth installment of the Just Grace series you'd think I'd be completely lost having started so late into it. Well, you'd be absolutely wrong. Although, you'd be right about something I definitely want to go back and read the other five books in the series because I loved this one so much!
Just Grace and the Terrible Tutu by Charise Mericle Harper
Grace, not "Just" Grace, is hilarious. Charise Mericle Harper is incredible at writing about this age group, which in my opinion would seem rather difficult, but she's gets everything just right. From Grace's silly thought process to the way little girls, especially the oldest in the family, interact with everyone by feeling it's their obligation to make everything better.
It's a riot to read as an adult and early chapter book readers will no doubt be able to relate to Grace's life. Not only is Just Grace and the Terrible Tutu funny and enjoyable to read, it also tackles some difficult issues. More families than ever are adopting children and as an older sibling it's bound to be a tricky situation for parents to navigate without having feelings hurt on all sides.
Grace's best friend Mimi will soon become a big sister by way of adoption and though she's extremely excited there are obvious apprehensions she has about the new unknown relationship. Through Grace and her "empathy powers" she's able to bring Mimi closer to Lily, giving her hope for her own future "big sister" responsibilities. Older children welcoming new siblings into their home will no doubt relate to Mimi, but they'll also find comfort in the outcome of the book. Just Grace and the Terrible Tutu is a book that will have adults reliving their childhood with fondness and young readers devouring every bit of Grace's resemblance to many of their own experiences.
A quick and often funny read, this is a story that also provides readers with a since of comfort and hope in the face of a sometimes difficult situation. Without a doubt I'd recommend the Just Grace series to young and old readers alike, and it would be especially beneficial if read together!

I was so glad when I found out that Net Galley offered this entertaining book for review. Although I just read the first two book of Just Grace Series, I still can keep up with all the rest of the story. Although there was one character whose story that I completely forgot, I did not get lost. I still enjoyed what Grace told in every chapter.
This is the sixth book. I thought I would see a grown up Grace. Unfortunately, I found there was nothing new from Grace. She still could not take "Just Grac I was so glad when I found out that Net Galley offered this entertaining book for review. She still could not take "Just Grace" as her nick name at school. Great empathy power was something that she proud of.
Her superhero breakfast, french toast, did not change at all. But it was not tedious to read all those stuff above. Grace and her words have hooked me since I read the first book. Besides Grace has many new things to tell. Something interesting in this book is the appearance of Lily, a four years old - little girl with colorful tutu. For me, she was so cute. But for Grace, Lily was trouble. She even called her terrible tutu.
Grace almost gave up. Moreover, when she found out that Lily could not make a friend with Mimi. Undeniable, dealing with a girl like Lily was exhausting. I could not stop giggling when I read about all time that they spent together. Lily was absolutely one of my favorite girls in this installment. Another great character from this quick read book was Mimi, Grace's best friend. That sibling adoption things made her over-excited.
Most of her idea, plan even fear about "big sister" were totally hilarious. The illustration on this book was another thing that also does not change.
It is still nice to see it. I hope Atria, local publisher, will publish the next series. Since they have brought out the first and the second book. Cover Although I am not a big fan of pink, I think the chapters were representative in the cover. Read this book so you will get what I mean. Feb 13, Neely added it.

Unfortunately, thing get rocky when Lily wants nothing to do with Mimi and Mimi is afraid she'll be a failure as a big sister. Luckily, Grace comes up with a plan.
This is my Grace and her best friend Mimi are excited that Mimi's family will soon be adopting a little girl.
This is my first time reading a Just Grace book. The characters were fun and the style very cute. Girls 5 - 8 year old girls will enjoy this series. Apr 06, Louisa rated it really liked it Shelves: tweener , i-am-a-ten-year-old-girl. Charise Harper is like my kids' author hero.
