AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jessie's life falls apart when her grandmother comes to live with her and her family. Nanny has dementia and she can't seem to remember a thing. Not only does she accuse Jessie of taking her purse, she even tries to steal Jessie's new boyfriend! But everything changes when Jessie discovers some old love letters. Whose are they and what do the codes in them mean? She feels quite differently about Nanny now. A touching and funny story about the way life can sometimes be enriched by a crisis and about the connections between people as well as the differences' (Source: NLA).
