Name of the Novel -> Fair Weather by Richard Peck
Summary of the book ->
Rosie Beckett lives a simple life on her family’s farm in Illinois with her parents, sister
Lottie, brother Buster, and Grandad Fuller. One day a letter from their Aunt Euterpe in
Chicago arrives, inviting the Becketts to visit Chicago to see the World’s Columbian
Exposition of 1893. To the Beckett children, for whom a trip to town in a horse-drawn
wagon is quite exciting, a train ride to Chicago to see the famous World’s Fair promises
to be the biggest adventure of their lives. The Beckett clan is awed and thrilled by the big
city: They see skyscrapers, ride on a Ferris wheel, meet Buffalo Bill, and watch “moving
pictures” for the first time. In Chicago, the lives of Rosie, Lottie, Buster, and Grandad
(who surprised the children by joining them) are enlivened forever as they experience the
fair and city life for the first time. For lonely, widowed Euterpe the boisterous presence
of her relatives turns her life upside down and encourages her to put away her mourning
clothes and make new friends.
