bookshelves: historical-fiction, young-adult

Sequel to A Long Way from Chicago, with the sister reminiscing about the year she spent with her grandmother during the Depression when her folks had to live in one room while her dad was out of work. Aimed at a little older audience. The sister is fifteen/sixteen and she works out a romance with a young man who moves to town, but that is not the main focus of the novel, which still centers on the strong grandmother helping the girl with normal teen conflicts in a small town/small school atmosphere
