A Year Down Yonder

by Richard Peck

This is a good book. There's a girl named Mary Alice that moves down from Chicago to stay with her grandmother. Her grandmother is VERY tough. To see what they do you need to read the story.

This is an excellent book! But before you read it you should read the prequel, A Long Way From Chicago.

You are right. I didn't realize that there was a prequel before I read the book. After I read I was looking at the back and I realized that.

Read A Long Way From Chicago first. You will understand what is going on better.
