about

In this second book in the Top-Secret Diary of Celie Valentine series, ten-year-old Celie’s grandmother has moved in with her family, and Granny’s forgetfulness is starting to worry Celie. In the meantime, Celie can tell her parents are keeping secrets, but she can’t talk to her best friend, Lula, or her sister, Jo, because they’re both keeping secrets, too! Why isn’t Lula sharing with Celie? Who is Jo texting all the time? And what is Celie supposed to do when special time with her grandmother becomes much more complicated—and possibly dangerous—than Celie can manage on her own? Once again, Celie turns to her diary as she tries to sort this all out, filling the pages with humorous, heartfelt entries, notes, drawings, and pages from her top-secret spy notebook.

Editorial Reviews

"Although the issues Celie faces—loss of her best friend, conflicts with her sister, concerns about her cognitively compromised grandmother—are major, the story is in no way heavy… A heartfelt but amusing story about the many challenges of growing up." —Kirkus Reviews "Ten-year-old Celie continues the ultra-honest (and at times unintentionally funny) journal she began in the first book, Friendship Over!... Celie’s voice is fresh, completely unselfconscious, and emphatic… Much of the book’s considerable humor, as well as its pathos, is communicated in Celie’s sketches, diagrams, and notes—scribbly, heartfelt, and immediate." —Horn Book
