A Long Way From Chicago: A Novel in Stories by Richard Peck

A summer they'll never forget.

Each summer Joey and his sister, Mary Alice-two city slickers from Chicago-visit Grandma Dowdel's seemingly sleepy Illinois town. Soon enough, they find that it's far from sleepy...and Grandma is far from your typical grandmother. From seeing their first corpse (and he isn't resting easy) to helping Grandma trespass, catch the sheriff in his underwear, and feed the hungry-all in one day-Joey and Mary Alice have nine summers they'll never forget!

"A rollicking celebration of an eccentric grandmother and childhood memories." -School Library Journal, starred review

"Each tale is a small masterpiece of storytelling." -The Horn Book, starred review

"Grandma Dowdel embodies not only the heart of a small town but the spirit of an era gone by...

Remarkable and fine." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
