Summary
Marie-Grace Gardner has just arrived in New Orleans, and she hopes she never has to move again. The lively city is full of music and masquerade balls! When she meets Mademoiselle Océane, a talented opera singer, Marie-Grace longs to take lessons. She loves to sing, and she would like to get to know Cécile 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? Includes an illustrated "Looking Back" essay about the history of New Orleans. The story continues in the second book in the series, Meet Cécile.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's 1853, and when Marie-Grace and her physician father move to New Orleans, she is ready for adventure in the exotic city. Parades, the sound of French in the air, markets, steamboats, the French Quarter, and, best of all, Mardi Gras promise lively contrast to her former little Massachusetts hometown. Now if the quiet little girl could just figure out how to enjoy it all. When she meets Cecile at a music lesson, opportunity beckons. Friendly, outgoing Cecile welcomes Marie-Grace and the two opposites click. Cecile's family is black and she educates her new friend about how the color line plays out in seemingly freewheeling New Orleans. When they concoct a daring experiment to briefly switch places at separate Mardi Gras costume balls, Marie-Grace notices keenly how the costumes make racial differences invisible. This first story in a new American Girl series is followed by Meet Cecile, with events told from Cecile's point of view, and four succeeding titles, presenting history with a charming personal touch.--O'Malley, Anne Copyright 2010 Booklist"
