But when Nancy finds out she can't go because her grandparents' fiftieth anniversary party is the same day, she is furious! How will she overcome this disappointment? In a glorious twist everybody's favourite fancy girl gets a sparkling lesson in fancy from her own grandparents. Maybe being fancy runs in the family after all!
