Although Grace’s time is short, her positive impact on the world around her is monumental. The story is about a young girl who knows that she is dying. Grace goes into a funeral home to learn about death and ends up teaching the disenfranchised funeral director, Bill, about life. We soon learn that while trying to “hedge the bet” about her afterlife possibilities she is also trying her best to prepare her mother, VENUS, for a future without her only child. Venus, we learn, is not dealing with the sad imminent truth well and is reverting to her old ways of drinking and “drugging.” Simultaneously, Grace humorously hijacks an ironically named “EMBRACE LIFE” class offered by her hospital for children dealing with their own fatal diseases, and moves it to the funeral home. Not only does she do her best to teach the adults in her life to live their lives to the fullest, she has the same effect on her peers. And she discovers love, herself. Grace is also desperately searching for someone to take care of her mother. Will it be Bill, Reverend Osborn or Ron, the charismatic and successful author of a book about the afterlife. Once those around her actually “GET” Grace, every one of them is able to transition to their own new life.
