Summary:
"On Christmas Day, 1926, twelve-year-old Clotilde "Coco" Irvine received a blank diary as a present. Coco loved to write - and to get into scrapes - and her new diary gave her the opportunity to explain her side of the messes she created: "I'm in deep trouble, through no fault of my own," her entries frequently began. The daughter of a lumber baron, Coco grew up in a twenty-room mansion on fashionable Summit Avenue at the peak of the Jazz Age. Her diary carefully records her adventures, problems and romances. Whether sneaking out to a dance hall in her mother's clothes or getting in trouble for telling an off-color joke, Coco and her escapades will captivate and delight readers of all ages"--Cover.
