本書榮獲2001美國紐伯瑞大獎 (The Newbery Medal for Best Children\’s Book)紐伯瑞大獎是由美國圖書館學會(American Library Association - ALA)的分支機構 -- 美國圖書館兒童服務學會(Association for Library Service to Children)於1922年創設的獎項。該獎項是為紀念十八世紀的英國書商,約翰‧紐伯瑞(John Newbery)而設置,得獎者必須是對美國兒童文學有傑出貢獻者,並以美國公民及永久居民為限,自1922年起每年頒發給前一年度最傑出的美國兒童圖書作者。  本書以一個女生的口吻描述,上高中的她因為家庭因素被送到鄉下和奶奶同住,在她眼中外表剛毅的奶奶,內心也有柔軟的部分,而正值青春期的她又面臨許多青少年問題,作者用細膩、幽默的筆法來表現外剛內柔的奶奶,和一些嚴肅的社會議題,讀起來非常過癮,不容錯過。

Richard Peck's Newbery Medal-winning sequel to A Long Way from Chicago
Mary Alice's childhood summers in Grandma Dowdel's sleepy Illinois town were packed with enough drama to fill the double bill of any picture show. But now she is fifteen, and faces a whole long year with Grandma, a woman well known for shaking up her neighbors-and everyone else All Mary Alice can know for certain is this: when trying to predict how life with Grandma might turn out . . . better not. This wry, delightful sequel to the Newbery Honor Book A Long Way from Chicago has already taken its place among the classics of children's literature.
