            Every summer, main characters Joey and Mary Alice go to Grandma Dowdels house. Pretty normal, right? Wrong. Grandma Dowdel is no ordinary grandma. She uses her ultimate wits, skills, and quick thinking to defend her turf while making herself look good. Brace yourself for a ton of humor, mischief, and suspense!


            I personally enjoyed this book, because of the unsettling plot points and humor. In a debate, I would argue that this book is a quality piece of literature, but a little too much slang and old grammar uses.


            I would recommend this book for those who love humor, mischief, and suspense, being used in the early 1900s. Also, make sure you can understand old time grammar uses and sudden turns of the plot.

      Every summer Joey and his sister Mary Alice go to their grandmoyher's house. Sounds plain now does it well it isn't. Grandma Dowdel is a top notch Granny. She will do any thing to defend her turf. Be prepared for a lot of humor, mischief, & suspense.
      
      Honestly I would say this is a really good book because of the way grandma handles problems. A Long Way from Chicago is a quality piece of literature even though grandma and the citzens all use old grammar.

     I would say A Long Way from Chicago is recomended for kids ages 10+  who love humor, mischief, & suspense all in one book. Plese understand that the dialect helps give a turn to the plot.
