    garreberry's book review was featured in Long Way From Chicago: Novel-Ties Study Guide.
    Summary of A Long Way From Chicago Joey and Mary Alice aren’t your average kids. They spend a week at their Grandma’s every year, and year after year they pick up more and more characteristics of their Grandma. They didn’t like going to their Grandma’s every year because she frightened them too much. For instance, their first summer with her she blew the top off a dead guy's coffin and acted like he had come alive just to scare away the visitors. Another time was when she took them fish trapping, but that was illegal and it wasn’t even her boat.But their Dad sent them down to their Grandma’s house every year for seven years. So they had no choice but to spend a week with their Grandma and hope not to pick up too many characteristics from her. Then they started to get used to it. They would go down to her house and get ready for the week's events and hope to make something out of nothing. Will they be able to stay in one piece and manage to keep from going crazy after going to their Grandma’s and being terribly influenced so much? Opinion of the novel This year I read a book in class called A Long Way From Chicago. My opinion of the novel is everyone should read it. I think they should read it because there are many different things that happen. Especially humor, everybody loves a good book with lots of humor. It is always good when the Grandma is crazy as can be, she breaks the law and brings her grandchildren with her! She does all kinds of funny interesting things and is hallarious. My favorite part of the book was chapter 3 One Woman Crime Wave. In that chapter Grandma takes ner grandchildren with her to a lake and takes someone else’s boat. Also she uses a fish trap but the thing in fish trapping is illegal. But what she does with the fish is cool, she uses it to feed the homeless. Which is very big because this book happenes during the Great Depression. I would definitely rate this book 5 out of 5 stars, It was awesome. I would definitely recomend reading this book, It is very good. In conclusion I think it is my favorite book of all time. A big quote from the book is: “You’ve had your time boy, you don’t get no more.” Grandma said that just before she shot two rounds at Shotgun Cheatham’s coffin.

    Marie Alice and Joey go to their grandma’s house every summer. They lived in Chicago and would ride the train every summer to grandma’s house. Some summer they didn’t want to go. But then they loved all of the adventures they had there. One summer Grandma , Marie Alice and Joey went fishing and used a fish cage which is illegal. There were also some police there but they were drunk. After that they caught Grandma and she escaped. The last summer they were there,there was a talent show and Anne Marie was in it and was wearing Grandma’s wedding dress and won the talent show. That was the last time Joe was there. Where did Joe go? The novel we read was called A Long Way From Chicago. My opinion of the novel is that it is a good book. I think this because there were a lot of different adventures and many where grandma breaks the laws. My least favorite part of the book was when it ended. Now Joe isn’t going to come back for a while or he will never come back. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 star. I rated it this because some of the book was a little boring. I would recommend this novel. I think people would like it because some people like the same kind of books as me. That is my opinion over A Long Way From Chicago. I reached out to some other classmates and they said that The book was a pretty good book but the chapters were a little long. Another friend said it was too hard to follow along. Some authors say the book is very good and they enjoy reading Richard Peck's books.
