This book is about two kids, Joey and Mary Alice and their summer vacations. Mary Alice and Joey are from Chicago. This book takes place during the Great Depression. The two siblings visit their Grandma every summer who lives in a small town outside of Chicago. They go on many adventures. From having a funeral in their living room to trespassing on the sheriff's property. This book never has a dull moment.

This book deserves four out of five stars! If the author had described the characters a little better i would of given the book Five Stars!
