The overall story is a bit unbelievable and quirky and that is part of its appeal. The characters are likable and the story flows well. I like that it has humor and is engaging yet there is a subtle message about family and giving second chances. I recommend this for teenagers and adults as well and would rate this 4 stars out of 5 and recommend it for ages 12 to 18. It is quirky, different and interesting. In an unique way it teaches that family members can learn to love each other or at least tolerate each other and deserve second chances. One of the greatest strengths is that the story is different and has humor. The characters are quite well done and I even found myself liking Grandma and although I am glad she's not my Grandma, the character really adds to this story. I would have liked to have more detail in exact location in the very beginning of the story but over all, it was quite well done. I do think that teenagers will find it fun to watch. Grandma is not your typical Grandma and she actually is a bit twisted but I actually felt more compassion towards this character as I continued to read and I think that viewers would feel the same way. Also, I think a lot can be done with the scenes when Andrew and his friend stay with Grandma. it is a fun story that has entertaining value. The plot is engaging and has a few twists. The characters are quite well done and it flows well. There is a bit of conflict between the characters because Grandma was a bad Mom to her son (the Dad in the story) and I felt the resolution was not over the top but that it ended well and was resolved. it is entertaining yet there is a subtle message about family and giving family members another chance even if they don't completely change. I think this is a valuable lesson for teenagers to learn and although most teenagers won't have Grandmas like this one it may make them appreciate their grandparents or see the in a different light.
A law and order kid spends a week with his outlaw Grandma. After Grandma commits an outlandish felony, Andrew Crandall has to decide which is more important - rules or family?
