Grace adores play acting and dressing up as her favourite fictional characters. So when her teacher announces her class are going to do the play of Peter Pan Grace immediately volunteers herself as Peter. Some of her classmates protest, telling her she can’t be Peter Pan as he’s a boy, and he’s not black. This upsets Grace. But when her Ma and Nana hear about what the children have said, they explain to Grace that she can be anything she wants to be if she has determination. Nana takes Grace to the ballet, where the lead dancer is a beautiful black girl. Grace realises her family was right: she can be anything she wants to be. At the school auditions, all the children vote for her and she is given the role of Peter Pan. The play is a great success and Grace gives a magical performance.
