5.0 out of 5 stars really a long way down, February 2, 2006

Suicide is not a group endeavor. But this it will become if you choose to kill yourself by jumping off the roof of London's most popular suicide spot - Topper's house, on the most popular night for committing suicide - New Year's Eve. This is the predicament of Martin, Maureen, Jess and JJ in Nick Hornby's latest bestseller, A Long Way Down. It is a bold setup, but Hornby pulls it off wit

this was a great book. It is about this girl who lives in chicago and she goes to live with her grandma who is short and fat. It is really funny and sometimes it can be really sad.

I have had a lot of fun reading these teen books by Richard Peck. Sometimes I just need a fun, quick read. These have been great. I've read A Long Way from Chicago , A Year Down Yonder and The Teacher's Funeral. thanks to Blake (I thing) for introducing me to them.

I love these books. Grandma is hilarious. I thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Each story had a great mix of funny and poignant. These are a great, quick read.

Try to find both of these books on CD. Delightful story of a brother and sister and their crazy like a fox grandmother. Great listening for car trips.

I love this Grandma!!! She does some very funny and unexpected things and I became endeared to her as her grandchildren did in the story.

It was so funny really reminded me of my grandma. It was very interesting to see how different life was in the depression.
