Publisher's Description

The arrival of a famous actress in twelve-year-old Addie’s small hometown makes the Easter of 1948 one she will never forget

Pigtailed and bespectacled, Addie lives with her dad and her grandma in Clear River, Nebraska. She dreams of a grown-up life in New York or Paris as a famous artist with famous-artist friends.

The most exciting part of Addie’s sixth-grade year has been sewing fancy Easter dresses for the school fashion show with her best friend, Carla Mae, and dyeing Easter eggs until their fingers are stained like rainbows. That is, until famous Broadway actress Constance Payne comes to town to attend her mother’s funeral.

Addie and her friends set off on a mission to meet the most exotic woman their town has ever seen. They even convince Constance to present the grand prize at the school style show! But when something goes awry at the awards presentation, Constance turns out not to be quite the glamorous celebrity Addie expected.

Will Addie’s dream of getting to know the famous actress come true? Or will she learn the meaning of friendship the hard way?
