A Year Down Yonder

A Year Down Yonder

by Richard Peck (2000)

Newbery Medal 2001

A city girl goes to live with her country Grandma during the Depression; hilarity ensues. Lots of personality and humor, believable narrator voice and many episodes to explore (hunting/stealing, Halloween, high school cliques, neighbors, 193o's, radio...)

This is the sequel to A Long Way to Chicago, Peck's 1999 Newbery Honor book.
