Grace Notes by Dandi Daley Mackall

~Saturday Stories~

Typical Gracie: "Gracie trudged into Big Lake High alone, imagining that she was as invisible as the humid air that pressed in on her from all sides. Inside, the halls buzzed. ... Gracie took out her recording notebook, leaned against her locker, and observed."

Gracie has always been invisible. She doesn't really belong anywhere either. But that's okay. She has her website, where she is free to open up and share her insights. Anonymously. Exactly how she likes it. But then someone figures out it's her, and she has to do something before everyone knows. Because then... then nothing will be the same.

Gracie likes to observe people and notice different body language signs that betray what someone really thinks or feels. However, people are harder to deal with in-person. Gracie has to learn to open and ask for forgiveness. She learns that it is good to belong somewhere and NEED people.

Grace Notes is a pretty good and light read. It also contains some truth about God, though not much.

Grace Notes is the first in the Faithgirlz/Blog On! series. The later ones are Love, Annie; Just Jazz; Storm Rising; Grace Under Pressure; Upsetting Annie; Jazz Off-Key; and Storm Warning.
