AUGUST 21st 

ABOUT BOOK: Fifteen-year-old Kari Rose discovers how much trouble she and her two sisters can get into when they stay at their ancient granny's for spring break. Granny gets a wild-haired notion at three in the morning, and she’s leaving with or without them. Kari makes the decision to take her sisters and ride with Granny in her old Cadillac on a five-hundred-mile-long trip north to visit family. Miles down the road, this harmless act finds Granny no longer able to drive, and Kari must take the wheel. Soon after, the four travelers are caught in a freeway-closing-down snowstorm which brings everyone and everything to a standstill. 

A second blizzard with catastrophic impact is about to descend upon them, and Kari must determine the best way to find shelter and beat the storm. Will Kari trust her gut instincts and rely upon a complete stranger to lead them to safety?

My favorite memory is of the huge family dinners my grandmother hosted on Thursday nights. The doors were open to anyone who came by and there was always a full house .

Most definitely,  Heidi, the Swiss exchage student our family sponsored over 20

years ago!  We keep in touch, via the internet.  We have discussed getting together with 

our families!  

Many thanks, Cindi

Cindi, would you email me? I need your correct address. Thank you.

What I can remember was my grandmother died when I was 14. We were living in Delaware at the time and my grandmother lived in Ohio. I was writing to a friend about the trip and I had written "On the road thinking about my grandmother. I got bored so I started reading." My mother read that and got angry. She said it made it sound like my grandmother was boring. I hardly knew her and I was 14. Needless to say the letter never got to the recipient.

My great grandparents lived in a trailer on my grandpa's property, so we got to spend a lot of time with them.  Every Christmas we went to their place first and Grandma Metts always gave me and my cousin a beaded change purse and Santa Book of lifesavers. 

My Paternal Great Grandmother lived with my grandparents as long as I can remember until she passed away. I spent lots of time there and because the neighbor kids were mean and wouldn't let me play on their swing set she paid for me to have a brand new one at their house. A few years later she bought me a piano that I still have today because I wanted to take lessons and my parents didn't have a lot of money.

she always kept the soft peppermint sticks and Juicy Fruit gum in her room and shared with us grandkids. The funniest thing I remember about her was she always wore an apron around her waist with pockets. She kept a tin snuff box in one pocket and dipped every now and then. She also would pour her hot coffee from her cup into the saucer and do what was called "saucer and blow". Then she would make the loudest noise slurping it!

1.. My memories of my paternal grandmother revolve around making biscuits in her farmhouse kitchen, singing with her as she worked and brushing her long gray hair as she napped. Precious memories, how they linger!

My favorite (and earliest) memory of my great grandmother is travelling with my family to her home to visit and when she opened her front door a whole litter of golden retriever puppies spilled out and came running down the sidewalk to greet me. I remember plopping down on the sidewalk and having puppies pouncing all over me! Ohhh, thank you for this question! I needed this moment!
