Free download A Year Down Yonder 107 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. I can often tell how old a person s grandmother was when she died by the grandchild s descriptions of her If Grandma is perpetually frozen in time as a dear woman who baked batches of cookies by the dozen I can usually surmise that the grandchild lost her at a relatively young ageOther evidence how Grandma smelled If the grandmother died while the grandchild was still young this is typically something favorable Ivory soap rose oil shortbread cookies a particular perfume If on the other hand your Grandma lived until you were almost 40 years old and you spent 12 consecutive summers living with her you might have a whole different impression of herWhen you come to know your grandmother as a full bodied adult you may still love her like crab cakes but you might just might know a few things about her that could make you want to throw her old relish dish across the room tooMy experience of my paternal grandmother is so loaded I still struggle to make peace with her some 10 years now after her passing Probably the most challenging and cathartic review I ever wrote for a book was for Margaret Laurence s The Stone Angel Many of my confused feelings about my grandparent were mirrored in that storyAnd here in Richard Peck s 2001 Newbery Medal winner A Year Down Yonder I unexpectedly stumbled upon another leading lady Mary Alice Dowdel who can t uite negotiate what it feels like to live with a difficult and outspoken grandmotherWow This was not only a brilliantly written book it twisted me up in a few tight knots tooGrandma Dowdel is a piece of work but she s a survivor too I was pleasantly surprised to find this spirited exploration of a complicated intergenerational relationship between two women in this middle grades read Luckily my girls enjoyed it as much as I didWith a small turn of hand Grandma waved Mrs Sheets away Mrs Sheets remained at her post Mrs Dowdel she went on you re not everybody s cup of tea Well it s common knowledge isn t it But we girls would be proud as Punch to have you join our Auxiliary if you re a veteran s wife Did your late husband go to war Only with me Grandma said and he lost every time
