Summary
Joey and his sister discover during their summer visits with Grandma that things can be quite exciting in a small town.
Critique
Quick, lively, and fun to read with a subtle message that life doesn't end when you age. Grandma is a live wire! There are also great bits of historical information about life in the 1930's in a rural area. Definitely worth your time. Humorous. Delightfully written.
