Following the death of her Aunt Eveline, fourteen-year old Addie—who we first met in Berthe Amosss classic Secret Lives—is now living with her Aunt Tooise, Uncle Henry, and her longtime rival cousin, Sandra Lee.

A new family has just moved into Addies former house, including a young girl who is just Addies age. Meanwhile, Louis, the father of Tom, Addies lifelong neighbor and best friend, suddenly returns after having disappeared when Tom was a baby. Between school dances, organizing a Christmas play, fretting about her hair, and a blossoming romance with Tom, Addie stumbles upon a mystery buried in the Great Catch All, an ancient giant armoire filled with heirlooms of her familys past, which holds a devastating secret that could destroy Louis and Toms lives.

Once again, Berthe Amoss has created an indelible portrait of a young girl coming of age in prewar New Orleans.Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Berthe Amoss is the author and illustrator of twenty-eight childrens and young adult books. Her picture book The Cajun Gingerbread Boy won a Childrens Choice Award, and her YA novel The Chalk Cross was a finalist for the Edgar Allen Poe Award. She lives on the Gulf Coast in Pass Christian, Mississippi.
