"Gathering Grace" ~ What if Harry Potter had been a girl?
If you can imagine Harry Potter as a girl who just turned fifteen and had never been to a 'special' school to discover and learn how to use her talents, you have some idea about Grace. Grace’s Mom recently passed away, and things haven’t been going so well living at Grandma’s house. So when Grace finds out she’s got another Grandmother – her real Grandmother – she wants an explanation! She gets that and more as she discovers the family’s super secret: their super Powers. Things can only get more complicated from there. Just how powerful is Grace?
