A Year Down Yonder review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB read Ì eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Richard Peck read A Year Down Yonder Mary Alice remembers childhood summers packed with drama At fifteen she faces a whole long year with Grandma Dowdel well known for shaking up her neighbor. It s 1937 and many Americans are learning that the Great Depression which began eight years previously is not over In fact people are losing their jobs and being evicted and having to scrounge for food This is the case for Mary Alice s family So while her brother featured in the Newberry Honor winning A Long Way from Chicago goes to the Civilian Conservation Corps Mary Alice is bound downstate to spend a year with Grandma Dowdel Mary Alice a young teen takes her cat and radio with on the Wabash Blue Bird which leaves Chicago bound for St Louis For an Illinois resident downstate refers to anything but the Chicago metro area Mary Alice isn t going to St Louis just some flag stop little town about halfway along the route We will get to know it very well through Mary Alice s eyes Peck shows a deft hand at striking a folksy note but not going overboard to cutesy People may be slightly exaggerated but their lives and occupations ring true That s Aunt Mae Griswold The Cowgills brought her to town in their dairy wagon She don t get out much any Grandma how old IS she Oh I don t know Grandma said You d have to cut off her head and count the rings in her neck When Sunday afternoon finally came the whole town was sleeping off big dinners as I paced the front room Grandma was offstage but audible I could hear her two rooms away One of her snores had a whistle in it like Aunt Mae s Her other one was low and throaty like pigs eating clinkers Grandma is a force of nature and a woman that most in town steer clear of Mary Alice is looked upon as the rich kid from Chicago despite her few threadbare outfits We get a full twelve months of Mary Alice and Grandma trying to get along get by and get to the next event in a very full and satisfying year I believe that while this book is intended for teens and young adults it can be appreciated by a wider audience I certainly enjoyed the descriptions of rural life and the humorous characterizations 45 Thanks again to my GR friend Julie for spotlighting this for me
