Description

Being ten is hard. Just ask Celie—who is juggling fights with her sister, secrets at school, a forgetful grandmother, and a best friend who won't speak to her. How can a girl who doesn't like change survive when everything around her is changing? By writing, of course. Girls will recognize their own struggles as they join Celie who lets it all out in her top-secret diary.
