A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
Mary Alice is spending the year with her Grandma Dowdel while her father looks for work during the Great Depression. She's spent summers there before with her brother, but now it's by herself for a whole year. She's not sure what to expect from the hick town and her outspoken, one-of-a-kind grandma.
I enjoyed the audio version of this book. It reminded me of the books by Kirkpatrick Hill which I love. This is actually the sequel to the Newbery Medal book Long Way From Chicago. So I guess I really need to go back and read that book.
