Obviously Gracie is happy for Sienna. Super happy! She helps Sienna compose the best texts, responding to A.J.'s surprisingly funny and appealing texts, just as if she were Sienna.

display_description Eighth-grade student Gracie Grant has a huge crush on handsome, popular AJ Rojanasopondist. The only problem is, AJ likes her best friend, Sienna. Grace quickly overcomes the tinge of jealousy she feels upon learning the news, and happily helps Sienna craft responses to AJ's surprisingly funny text messages. Unbeknownst to the girls, there's a good reason the messages seem out of character for AJ--his buddy Emmett is writing them on his behalf.
