A Long Way From Chicago
A Novel in Stories
From Library Staff
Each summer during the Great Depression, Joey and Mary Alice visit their outrageous grandmother in rural Illinois.
Grandma Dowdel is not a good influence--and that's one good reason why Joey likes visiting her. Each August, from 1929 to 1935, he and his younger sister travel by train from Al Capone's Chicago to spend a week with Grandma in her scrappy small Illinois town.
(4th -6th graders)
A boy recounts his annual summer trips to rural Illinois with his sister during the Great Depression to visit their larger-than-life grandmother. (gr 5 - 8)
