Recommends it for: everyone!
Charise Mericle Harper’s Still Just Grace proves even more delightful than the first book in the series, Just Grace, with lots of unforeseen changes for 9-year-old Grace Stewart. A new boy moves onto her block and into her class, and new friendships arise. Still Just Grace still maintains the same real-kid voice and the same fabulous cartoons as in the first book — both guaranteed to make you giggle and smile.

Grace visits her Grandma in Chicago, who has sold her home and is moving into an assis

We've just begun reading the Just Grace series by Charise Mericle Harper. This book takes us on a road trip to Chicago and back as Grace's family helps her Grandmother move. And then she chronicles her day-to-day school life, with conflicts and challenges galore. We really liked her project with two of the other Graces in class and her changing relationship with Grace F.

After reading the first two books, our girls are split: our oldest loves them, our youngest doesn't really like them at all. P

Charise Mericle Harper is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine! Her ability to articulate the thoughts and voice of a young child is impeccable. Her ability to use that limited child-like vocabulary in a way that is engagingly humorous while still presenting a wonderful life lesson is amazing.

In Still Just Grace, the empathetic Unlikely Hero begins to have jealous feelings when her neighbor and best friend, Mimi, seems to be gravitating toward new friendships. Just Grace is forced to be sc
This is an interesting book--as I was listening to it, I was trying to place how old Grace is. According to our catalog, she is 7, which puts her around 1st or 2nd grade, yet I would say that the reading level is more around the really good 3rd grade or even 4th grade level. Since kids usually want to read about kids who are older than them, I wonder how much appeal it would have for the target reading level. Grace is really cute, though, and has good ideas and since her grade or age is never me ...more

I must have liked the author's previous book a lot, because I gobbled this one right up directly after. (They are easy books to read while sitting at the information desk waiting for customers, if I need any justification.)
This book expands Just Grace's world a bit more, and our look into it as well. A consistent strength of these books is to deal with the problems of friends and non-friends and the reevaluation that sometimes happens in a gradual and realistic way.

I loved the project that the G

What a fun, fun book. I listened to this with my kids in the car over a period of several days. They actually requested to listen to it, rather than the usual request to watch DVDs. Read by a young girl, and written to sound just like a 3rd grader, the book really hooked my kids. Made me remember what it's like to be a kid and how I can't always assume I know what's going on in those little heads. ...more

This is a very smart, and realistic look at life from a third grader's point of view. I especially liked Grace's empathy power. Grace learns that things are not always what we think they are and neither are people. Good read. ...more

This book looks like a 3rd-5th grade book, but it is for a 1st-2nd grade interest level.

Slightly better than the first book. Getting a little boring but ill still probably finish the series.

Still Just Grace was another good story about Grace. I enjoyed the sequel as well as the first book.

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 t ...more

Still Just Grace is the second book in the Just Grace Series by Charise Mericle Harper. Grace is a third grader with a special superpower that she calls her "empathy power." Grace doesn't like it to see people unhappy and she always tries to fix the situation. This book is called Still Just Grace because her teacher and classmates refer to her as "Just Grace," since there are 3 other girls named Grace in her class. One of the other Grace's is very mean and as Grace narrates the story she refers ...more
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. ...more

Another sweet story about Just Grace. This time there's jealousy with her best friend Mimi, and the new boy next door. And we meet Grandma, who is just as awesome as you would expect! Grace's anxiousness about being assigned to a project with a rival Grace is well developed, but she conquers all these challenges using her Empathy Superpower and, as in the first book, the help of some kind grown ups.

This one felt a bit more negative, likely because of the stress of Grace's problems. But they're t

An entertaining and fun realistic fiction tale of Grace, her family, friends and school. On this adventure Grace leaves school for a vacation that helps her grandmother move into senior housing. When she returns she finds herself as the odd girl out in a classroom group project resulting in having to be a part of a group that she normally doesn't like. Does she make do, make new best friends or new worst enemies? Although, I find the boy girl angst rather sexist and unnecessary and perhaps not r ...more

We just finished the second book in the Just Grace series and I think my daughter (Grace...which is why we started reading these) like it more than the first. She actually asked me to read it to her instead of me saying "Time to read!"

Cute story and I like how it's like it's Just Grace's journal or at least written in that point of view. I also like the cute illustrations. Both my girls like hearing it and after this book my Grace asked to look at a locket that I have. I think it helped her rel

One day I was at the libary with my friend. I asked her a good book she had read. She pulled out a hard covered book that was pink. I didnt want to read it but I didnt want to hurt her feelings. So I checked it out. At school I just read the book and then the book became a magnet. I hid the book under my desk just to read on. It then became my most favorite book I read in March.

My daughter enjoyed this book very much. She loved the "ups and downs" in the story and that it all worked out in the end. My daughter thought it was particularly interesting when "Grace helped her grandma move to a different apartment in Chicago." She thought it was funny and has eagerly read several books in this series. ...more

This book is really nice but it only suits for GIRLS, but boys can read too! If you read the summary on the front cover it doesn't really tells you about it.. you got to really read it to Find out!

Grace draws cartoons and she likes sparkly stuff and wearing clothes imprinted with Supergirl logos. Recommend it to girls who are early chapter book readers. A nice story about making new friends and keeping the old.

Just Grace is back in another hilarious adventure! When a new boy moves in, Grace is worried that her best friend will start liking him better than she likes Grace. Will they stay friends after all?
This is a great book. I love the Just Grace series.

This is a recommendation for a girl' book dlub. We were reading it aloud together and gave up. It just wasn't capturing our imaginations and is certainly isn't "enduring literature", but it wasn't even fun in my opinion. What am I missing? Everyone gives books in this series 4 stars. . . ...more

My daughter and I are enjoying reading the Just Grace Books aloud to each other. I love the books because they engaged my daughter. She has had such hard time getting into reading. These books just might help her turn the corner and become a life-long reader!
