Chapter Nine Summary

About a week after Granny's funeral, Will goes to Grandpa Blakeslee's house. Granny had never been much of a housekeeper, but she kept her house mostly neat. Now the house is in horrible shape. Will spends the morning cleaning it up, then sits on the step and cries for his Granny.

Will thinks as he is cleaning house, that his Granny would've hated dying in such a plain way. She always told stories about people who died or were considered dead, like those who have a grave because their families considered them dead because of something they did, or like Will's Grandmother who "died twice." After thinking about it for sometime, Will decides that maybe she didn't die so plain after all. Will feels that even she would find it notable that Grandpa Blakeslee remarried in only three weeks.
