Product Overview

What would you do if you were about to lose your best friend … forever?

Grace Marshall is eleven years old. She’s curious and creative and dreams of becoming a magician called Grace the Amazing!

Grace’s only friend is her art teacher, Pamela. When she discovers that Pamela is ill, the fragile certainties Grace relies on threaten to slip away. On her mission to find a cure for Pamela using miraculous magic, Grace asks the big questions about life, love, and friendship.

A sensitive story filled with joy, emotion, and special bonds that last a lifetime.


Praise for Grace the Amazing:

"... a balanced, meaningful account of how to say goodbye to someone you love." - Maura Pierlot, CBCA Reading Time

"... this is a coming-of-age story that will resonate with many who also feel isolated, a misfit and misunderstood, as once again, Darlison has created credible characters who could be the kids we know and so the reader fits right into the story." - Barbara Braxton, Teacher Librarian, The Bottom Shelf

"Darlison manages to strike just the right tone for a book that depicts a child’s first experience of death: it is both emotive and genuinely funny ..." - Charlotte Callander, Books+Publishing
