About the Book


Ten-year-old Celie is back with another journal full of heartfelt entries and humorous illustrations. Celie’s grandmother has moved in with the family, and Granny’s forgetfulness is starting to worry Celie. But Celie’s parents, best friend, and sister are keeping secrets from her. Who is Celie going to talk to when time with her grandmother becomes more complicated—and possibly dangerous—than Celie can manage on her own? “Although the issues Celie faces . . . are major, the story is in no way heavy . . . A heartfelt but amusing story about the many challenges of growing up.” —Kirkus Reviews
