Title: Meet Marie-Grace
Series: American Girls: Marie-Grace & Cecile #1
Illustator: Cindy Salans Rosenheim & Christine Kornacki
Author: Sarah Masters Buckey

Marie-Grace Gardner has just arrived in New Orleans, and she hopes she never has to move again. The lively city is unlike any other place Marie-Grace has lived. When she meets Mademoiselle Oceane, a talented opera singer, Marie-Grace longs to take lessons. She loves to sing, and she would like to get to know Cecile Rey, the confident girl who is Mademoiselle's student. But Marie-Grace is shy, and starting school reminds her how hard it is to make friends and fit in. Can an unexpected adventure help her feel as if she belongs in New Orleans?


Meet Marie-Grace begins when Marie-Grace and her father move to New Orleans. She has lost her mother and brother, and now must have a new life here. She finds it difficult to make friends with some of the people she goes to school with, and she gets more and more lonely with her father working more and more.  She must do everything she can to try to make it work here because she no longer wishes to have to move around so much.

This book had an interesting story and a very interesting little girl, but that’s about it. I didn’t really feel very much emotion from it, and I didn’t feel very connected to anything. It was a nice book to pass the time with, but I never really got into it that much.

I wouldn’t mind reading more about this girl and her friend, but I hope they are more interesting than this one. I still liked it, since I will read more, but I was expecting a little more from this one.
