I wish I knew who recommended this to me, or how I found it! Little (indie!) books like these are a treasured favorite of mine. This is set in 1920s St Paul (that's Minnesota, don't'cha know), and is such a delightful little diary of Coco's life. The last 20 or so pages are full of photographs from her life and the time, and a brief family biography.

I think I need to check the publisher website and see what's new! (U of MN Press)
