    26hoffk's book review was featured in Long Way From Chicago: Novel-Ties Study Guide.
    Joe and Mary Alice wanted to have a normal summer. But with Grandma they knew they were never going to have a normal summer, ever. A thing that was common with Grandma is lying and blackmail like when she blackmailed the sheriff when he caught her feeding the drifters, or when she lied about having Vandalia Eubanks in her house. So Mary Alice and Joe went along with whatever Grandma was doing because they knew that they could not stop her. Yet Grandma did all these things for a good reason. Grandma told all those lies and blackmailed in order to help those in need. Then by the end of the story we see how the characters have changed throughout the book. Like when Joey tells us in the book that since he is getting older he would like to be called Joe and not Joey. Or when Grandma helped Effie Wilcox get her house back which shows that they have gotten over their differences. This is just a few of grandma´s crazy adventures in the book ¨A Long Way From Chicago¨. In this paragraph I will explain my opinion on the novel A Long Way From Chicago. My opinion on the book is that it was very interesting and funny. This is my opinion because throughout the whole entire book Grandma, Joey, and Mary Alice find themselves in the craziest situations possible! Like the time when Grandma put the old tomcat in the coffin and made it out to be Shotgun coming back to life. Or the time when Grandma dressed up as the phantom brakeman on the train tracks so Vandalia and Junior could escape. My favorite part of the book was the ending because I got to see how much the characters have changed throughout the whole entire book. My least favorite part was also the last chapter because that meant the book was coming to an end. Or the chapter where Grandma switched the pies so she could win, because there was not a lot of action. If I had to rate the book out of five stars I would rate it a five. I would recommend reading this novel if you love crazy situations and a Grandma who loves to lie.
