Grace’s mother is a movie star. World travel, famous people, and movie sets are her life. So are bodyguards, paparazzi, and constant chaos. Grace dreams of a normal life with regular school and real friends. She also dreams of knowing her father, whose identity her mother has never revealed. When her secretive mother announces they’re going to Martha’s Vineyard for the summer, Grace doesn’t know the island holds the keys to her family history. But once the connection becomes clear, she can’t resist searching for some answers. Grace makes some surprising moves along the way, from making a friend and piercing her ears to developing a strong suspicion of who her father is.

Jan M. Czech lives in Sanborn, New York.From Booklist:
Gr. 8-11. Fifteen-year-old Grace lives an unusual life. Her mother, Constance Meredith, is an A-list movie star in high demand and ruthlessly hunted by the paparazzi. Grace has never had a real home or attended a regular school; she grew up on movie sets and is homeschooled by a live-in teacher. Her life may not be normal, but it isn't all that bad. It could almost be perfect if Grace only had two things: the chance to experience a typical teenage life, even for a little while, and a way to overcome her mother's reluctance to share the name of Grace's father. However, when Constance needs a rest and brings Grace to Martha's Vineyard for the summer, getting what she wants may not be quite as difficult as Grace originally thought. Fitting comfortably into the chick-lit genre, this is a light and pleasantly predictable first-person story. Hand it to girls who enjoy Meg Cabot's Princess books and other stories about children of media celebrities, such as Gaby Triana's Backstage Pass (2004) and Rose Wilkins' So Super Starry (2004).
