Year Down Yonder, A

by Richard Peck


Quick Overview

The winner of the 2001 Newbery Medal continues the story begun in the Newbery Honor Book "A Long Way from Chicago." Now 15-years old, Mary Alice is going to spend an entire year with her unpredictable Grandma Dowdel--a woman well known for shaking up her neighbors.


Mary Alice's childhood summers in Grandma Dowdel's sleepy Illinois town were packed with enough drama to fill the double bill of any picture show. But now she is fifteen, and faces a whole long year with Grandma, a woman well known for shaking up her neighbors-and everyone else! All Mary Alice can know for certain is this: when trying to predict how life with Grandma might turn out . . . better not. This wry, delightful sequel to the Newbery Honor Book "A Long Way from Chicago" has already taken its place among the classics of children's literature. Size 0.4" H x 7.73" L x 5.08" W, 144 pages
