Grace has a great imagination. Her mother and grandmother support her dreams by participating in Grace’s fantasies. At school, when she raises her hand to try out for the lead in the school play, Peter Pan, a boy tells her she can’t get the part because she’s not a boy and a White girl tells her she can’t because she’s Black. Grace imagines that what they say might be true. But her grandmother knows what to do! She takes Grace (in their every-day clothes) to see a ballet starring a Black ballerina. When she returns to school empowered with a stronger identity, Grace aces her audition and gets the lead role.
