Fourteen-year-old Angela Ziff finds an intriguing hat and letter in her grandmother’s attic that opens the door to a family past that no one can imagine. Though her grandmother has passed away, the old house and the objects provide clues that Angela and her best friend Alan follow through a web of deceit and danger that ultimately reveals a shocking truth. Her grandmother had been helping hide a wanted Nazi war criminal. Angela finds a grandfather she never knew she had; encounters her real father, who threatens to repeat the family violence of the past; and tries to help her damaged mother navigate the new changes and accept them. Most of all, Angela finds that she must face some of the inexplicable unfairness of life just at the moment when she thinks she finally has some answers. Everything begins in her grandmother’s attic.


"The book, Grandmothers Attic is a really good book in general. It’s good for young and older children too. The book in a way is very exciting! It keeps you on the edge of your seat and it makes you never want to put it down. It is also very informing about the Holocaust and all its details."

For centuries, the 'Chick' has blessed the Tidewater region of Virginia with life, even today in the face of deteriorating resources and dramatic environmental change. While an abundant ecosystem thrived in the water, a unique and culturally rich community that once dotted the Chick's riverbanks has dwindled near extinction. Author Jack Trammell spent the past three years on the river researching its incredible past and uncertain future. Drawing on old letters, photographs and the still extant memories of lifelong watermen like Captains Bill Buck Jr. and Art Conway, he weaves a fascinating narrative of this river community. Hop onboard and join the search for the record perch, the vanished villages, the proud Chickahominy tribe and the vestiges of the Civil War in this definitive and easy-to-navigate history of a sacred Virginia tributary.

One secret in particular turns their relationship upside down, and propels Jack on a journey that threatens the destruction of his marriage, the loss of a coming baby, and possibly even the end of his own life.
