    miriotogata's book review was featured in Long Way From Chicago: Novel-Ties Study Guide.
    In the novel Long Way From Chicago which was written by Richard Peck, we find two children (Joey and Mary Alice) going on a seemingly innocent visit to their grandmother’s house. Little do the kids know that the woman is an absolutely crazy liar! This small family is surrounded by a bucket load of other colorful characters such as Effie Wilcox, the Cowgill family, and Ms. L. J. Weidenbach. Their grandma also performed circus-like acts; such as shooting an already dead body, stealing the town sheriff’s boat right in front of him, and switching name labels on two pies. The protagonist Joey and his little sister witness each of these things, and wonder whether or not this woman is a good or bad influence, and if she has completely lost her mind. Sure, her antics may not always be the best, but you soon find out that her actions aren’t as devious as they seem. She has a soft side too, she’s only trying to protect her grandchildren and friends. This humorous novel will definitely keep you up all night just to learn what happens next. This novel is also a good way to poke fun at a point of hardship and sadness. Join these characters throughout their crazy adventures in the past. Our most recent class novel was Long Way From Chicago, written by Richard Peck. I absolutely loved every part of this book. The reason I absolutely loved it is the amount of laughter it brought from me, and the amount of excitement I always had when we would go to read another chapter. My favorite part from the novel had to be the entire first chapter. It’s when the kids first meet grandma and first learn that she is a liar, at the very end of the chapter, grandma shoots a dead corpse that was sitting in the front room. The idea shocks me out of my wits, but it’s hilarious. I would definitely give this book a five out of five rating. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a good laugh, or anyone who needs a really good book to read!
