    ace2007's book review was featured in Long Way From Chicago: Novel-Ties Study Guide.
    Joey and Mary Alice live in Chicago with their parents and go and visit their Grandma for a week each summer. However, their Grandma isn’t like any other Grandma. She is a little crazy and takes them on wild adventures, like stealing the sheriff’s boat or going trap fishing which is illegal in this time period. The first summer Grandma held a wake for Shotgun. The second summer she catches a bunch of boys playing pranks and blowing up outhouses. The third summer Grandma steals the sheriff's boat and goes trap fishing. The fourth summer she cheats on the pie baking contest and gets Joey a free airplane ride. The fifth summer Mary Alice helps Vandalia Eubanks escape from her abusive mother and run away with her boyfriend and Grandma and Joey help out. The sixth summer Grandma tricks the bank into giving Mrs. Wilcox back her house. Last summer they were there and they went to the Centennial Celebration. Even though the kids always worry about getting in trouble with Grandma, it seems like they always have fun. Every year they still choose to keep coming back.This is my opinion over the novel A Long Way From Chicago. My opinion on this novel is very good. The reason why I like this novel is because there are many funny parts like when Grandma stole the sheriff’s boat. When we were done with the novel I already picked how many stars out of five. I would pick five stars because I loved the novel. The novel was also super interesting. Especially when Grandma disguised as the phantom brakeman. The reason why I thought that was interesting is because at first I thought it was Mary Alice but then I found out it was Grandma. If I would recommend this novel to someone else I would say I like the novel a ton and there are a lot of good cliffhangers. I would also say the novel has a lot of funny adventures that Grandma takes Joey and Mary Alice on. That is how I would recommend the novel to someone else.
