  • Rising Action
  • On the day of the trip, the grandmother hides her cat in a basket in the car. She wears a dress and hat with flowers on it so that people will know she is “a lady” if there’s an accident.
  • Climax
  • The grandmother wakes from a nap and realizes that a plantation she once visited is nearby. She says that the house had six white columns and was at the end of an oak tree–lined driveway.
  • Climax
  • She lies that the house had a secret panel to make the house seem more interesting. Excited, the children beg to go to the house until Bailey angrily gives in. The grandmother points him to a dirt road.
  • The family drives deep into the woods. The grandmother suddenly remembers that the house was in Tennessee, not in Georgia. Horrified at her mistake, she jerks her feet. The cat escapes from the basket and startles Bailey, who wrecks the car.
  • The children’s mother breaks her shoulder, but no one else is hurt. The grandmother decides not to tell Bailey about her mistake.
