Grace is one of the main characters of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Grace is the one of the most popular girls in the school, and head cheerleader. Throughout the series, Grace is a devoted Christian.
Season 1 Edit
In the pilot episode, her parents give her an abstinence, or purity, ring to show that she won't have sex until she is married. She dates Jack and they are both seen discussing her ring. In the beginning of the series, Grace's father died in a plane crash right before she lost her virginity to Jack. After her father's death, Grace became deeply depressed and soon began to believe that she was the cause of her father's death. Grace starts dating Ricky Underwood out of rebellion, turning Ricky into a Christian, and hoping to make Jack jealous after he slept with Adrian. Grace and Ricky end up dating but Ricky breaks up with her soon after. Lulu was one of the teenagers at Ben and Amy's wedding, Amy's baby shower, and the hospital when Amy gave birth to John.
Season 2 Edit
Grace had a fling with Ben Boykewich, but Ben decided to end it with her and slept with Adrian because he was upset over Amy kissing Ricky. Adrian slept with Ben because she wanted to get back at Ricky and Amy. After Amy had John, Grace often visited Amy's house, when Madison and Lauren brought over her homework.
Season 3 Edit
Grace starts to date Grant. They met in medical camp the past summer. Grace starts to befriend Adrian and Amy over season 3.
Season 4 Edit
Grace goes to Africa and cheats on her then-boyfriend Grant with a college boy (that she slept with) named Daniel. When Kathleen meets Daniel, she is very uncertain if the two should be together. Grace was at the hospital when Adrian and Ben lost their baby. Grace's mother finds out that Marshall cheated on her with a women in Africa and he fathered a boy named Jacob who is only a couple of years younger than Grace. Jacob lives with Grace for the summer of her senior year. Grace ultimately skipped med camp that year and decided to move in with her best friend Adrian. Grace starts feeling an attraction to girls, and questions her sexuality. She admits to Adrian that she was "curious". They kiss to quell their curiosity, and this scares Grace and she runs back to Christianity.
Season 5 Edit
Grace is one of the first to find out that Kathleen has started dating Amy's dad, George. She becomes more depressed and turns to her church for guidance. She tells Jack that she wants to get together with him, but only in a monogamous relationship. Jack refuses because he is no longer a Christian like Grace is. Then, he decides that he loves Grace too much to lose her again, so he goes back to being a Christian which helps his college football team's notoriety. When Jack and Grace are on a break, Jack sleps with Clementine, Ricky's foster sister. When Grace finds out, she breaks up with him but ultimately decides to take him back. She attempts to rekindle her relationship with Amy Jeurgens and Adrian Lee. She will most likely go to Amy and Ricky's wedding.
