A Long Way From Chicago
by Richard Peck (Series)

In short stories, one for each summer Joey recounts his annual trips to rural Illinois somewhere between Chicago and St. Louis with his sister younger, Mary Alice. They would spend a week every August with Grandma Dowdel who tells whoppers, uses her wit and trespasses, to help the town underdogs from 1929 to 1935 during the Great Depression.
