Book Overview And no kidnappers or hoodlums are going to stop them from seeing Grassy Ella.

Peggy Jean Peej West is a great one for figuring things out. If she weren't a 12-year-old girl, says her sister, Annie, she'd probably be a five star general. So when Peej decides that faith healer Graciella Bujold can cure her of cancer, it seems only natural to Annie that the two of them should take off on their way to find her. And no kidnappers or hoodlums are going to stop them from seeing Grassy Ella.

Well-written, the two little girls are delightful, their escapade doesn't go exactly as planned, but it all ends very well.

This is a delightful tale for kids of all ages, including this over-the-hill guy who simply loves to read a well-written story. The characters are beautifully crafted, and the plot is completely believable. Having lived in New York City at the very time of the book's action, I can vouch for its accuracy of place and tone. Amazingly, the author even seems to get the smell of the city just right! It brought back a thousand memories of Manhattan, and swept me up with its fast-paced developments. A real page-turner...or, on my Kindle, a button-pusher.

I could not add any more to the rave reviews other readers have already so eloquently expressed. The book is packed with surprises but the biggest surprise comes in a postscript by Kathryn Lance herself. Please read this book no matter what your age. You will not be disappointed.

I enjoyed the tale very much. I think it would make a great TV movie. The sisters are drawn well and it has a happy ending!

At age 61, I now consider myself a "young adult," and so I am finally beginning to read the proper "YA" books. "Going To See Grassy Ella," by award-winning author Kathryn Lance, is my first, and from the first page to the last, I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing book. I recommend it highly to all slightly "older" young adults like me, or to young adults of any age.

Lance writes with exceptional clarity and originality, exhibiting a "tightness" of technical style that was a pleasure to read. The story itself is quite fast-paced as well, with each chapter leading seamlessly into the next, making the book very hard to put down. Along the way, one surprise follows another, so that I could not even guess what was going to happen next, or how the story might end.

The main characters, Peej and Annie, are two precocious young sisters on a mysterious cross-country trek, which on several levels becomes a mission of life and death, and the adventure of a lifetime. The girls are instantly likable, which meant that I was rooting for them from the get-go. Their many exploits offer a touchingly-drawn combination of discovery, fun, compassion, intrigue, and courage. Throughout the story, Lance expertly moves the reader from intense feelings of hope and wonder, to giddy feelings of excitement, to confusion and danger, and finally, to growth and renewal.

With "Grassy Ella," Kathryn Lance has once again provided her readers with a thrill-packed roller coaster ride in the "Life in the Raw" amusement park, more than worth the price of admission. Buy it and read it yourself. Or read it together with a young person. I guarantee that you will find yourself reading this story and enjoying it, again and again.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review.

As a lifelong lover of books, I tend to read quickly. So when this story came across and I realized I was finished, I was upset that it was shorter than normal because I would have enjoyed the further exploits of the girls in the story. As an adult, I still enjoy reading young adult or teen fiction because it can be a story that is simpler or focused on ideals instead of heavy drama. Not so with this story.

Peej and Annie are sisters living in Columbus, Ohio. Peej, a cancer patient and not quite a teenager, reads of a faith healer in New York and researches ways to go see her while her parents are at a conference. She talks her older sister, Annie, into going with her. Through a series of exploits they manage to take in a Mets game, bust up a drug ring (not a spoiler, it says this on the first page of the book), and have the adventure of a lifetime.

In some ways, this book really reminded me of From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by e.l. konigsberg. While Peej and Annie were not running away permanently, they were on a secret adventure. They made friends. They were in a bit of a mystery. Mixed-up was and remains a favorite of mine, and the nostalgic comfort and similarity just made this book more endearing.

If you're still looking for one more gift for that young teen on your gift list, then you may want to pick up Kathryn Lance's "Going to See Grassy Ella." This story is based on the author's real-life sister who died of leukemia at the age of 13. The book, however, has a much happier ending.
Two sisters, Peej and Annie, from Ohio manage to get on a plane and fly to New York without their parents' knowledge (that's a bit unrealistic these days, but who knows?). Peej, a cancer patient, reads about a faith healer in New York and figures out how she and Annie can make the trip while their parents are at a conference. Once there, life is quite an adventure. From seedy hotels to a mysterious new friend to a Mets game, they manage to keep afloat. Finally, they get to see "Grassy Ella" and through it all also help to break up a drug ring. Maybe farfetched but lots of fun to read. The younger generation in your home will enjoy this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
There is a message in the back of this book from or by the author, which explains the reasoning behind the story. I think it should be at the front, because it gives this childrens/YA book a different frame of reference when you realise this is what the author wishes it had been like.
As a story it is suited for younger children also, because there is no use of bad language and/or scenes. It is about a child searching for hope and a miracle. On the way she bonds with her sister and makes a few odd friends along the way. Miracles can and do happen, just not for everyone, but the message in this story is to find the positivity within you and in return it will find you. I received a free copy of this book for my review.
