I am going nuts trying to remember a book I read, probably in the '90s. Setting was early 1900s--the family had one of the early automobiles, but there were horses as well. I'm thinking Ohio. Main characters were a young boy about 9-10 who wore knickers and suspenders, and his slightly wacky grandma whose favorite expression was "hoo boy!" Funny, sweet story that became a movie, too. I hope someone will remember this book; I want to read it again.
Thanks, Sue in IL
Thank you for looking, but that doesn't sound right. There wasn't any ethnic tie-in that I remember. Somebody, the grandpa, maybe, had been in a car accident and was in a wheelchair. I wish I could remember more, but I don't have enough information to search for it myself. So frustrating!

Do you remember who was in the movie?
Unfortunately, no. I thought Jason Robards might have played the grandpa, but an IMDb search didn't confirm that. I was able to find and re-read another of my favorite books that someone on our board remembered: Saving Cee Cee Hunnicut by Beth Hoffman. Holding out the same hope again!

There are so many really good books out there to read. I got a copy of "The Nightingale" for Christmas. It's proving to be a very good read. I always keep several books, of various subject matters, on my nightstand shelves. I never know until I go to bed what I feel like. I just finished Rise of the Rocket Girls.. about the women of JPL and the young grad students who were the ones who started it. I love Autobiographies too. Reading is good for the soul.

Totally agree. I read "The Nightingale" and loved it.
