In this story we see the world through the eyes of Gracie, the laughingstock of all the children in Jubilee Terrace. Her ill-tempered manner and her scolding voice are her only weapons of defense. One day as Gracie creeps upstairs to check on her sick grandmother, she opens the door and is astonished at the scene before her!
But she has not a single friend to talk to until one day a stranger brings a glimmer of light into her darkened world. He introduces her to the one perfect Friend who never fails anyone! From that moment on, Gracie’s life is forever changed.
As Mark Hamby writes of this story, “May we strive together to step out of our own self-centered lives and take notice of someone – perhaps a neighbor we pass by each day – with whom we can share a smile, or meet a hidden need.”
