Amazing Gracie

amazing gracie "Gracie, fifteen, looks just like her mother--and she worries that she's like her in other ways, for Mom has a history of depression. Practical Gracie has been the one to manage their lives. Then Mom remarries, suddenly, and they move to Salt Lake City, where Gracie has to share a room with her six-year-old stepbrother, Sinjian. In some ways the move is good for Gracie. She meets Tiimo, her first boyfriend, explores the city, and even begins to enjoy Sinjian's company. But for Mom, it's a disaster--and it's up to Gracie to hold the family together." (Delacorte 1991)
