Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer SHC
Mary Alice and Joey go to visit their
Grandma Dowdel out in the country each summer for
seven years in a row. Each chapter in the book
is about there experiences during one of these
visits. Over time Mary Alice and Joey realize
that their Grandma is not ordinary; she can
handle a gun, trespasses, lies, and cheats.
There is another side of Grandma Dowdel that they
also come to know, she feeds and cares for the
hungry, and helps the town when it is in need.
The book is well written and filled with
hilarious moments, which made it a Newbery Honor
book. I recommend it if you are looking for
something light and fun to read.
