SummaryAdd a Summary
I read half of this book and it was pretty much about a child ranting on and on about how he had to write a report and he decided to write it about him and his grandfather. (a "war" they apparently had had) He kept on complaining about his ailing grandfather who's wife had passed and he had to move upstairs to the guest room because his grandfather could not get up 3 flights of stairs. (arthritis) But because his grandfather is now living with his family, he needs to find a way to get rid of him.
