The Granny Project

(1983)
A novel by

 
When Natasha and Henry find they can't care for Granny at home any more, they decide to put her in a nursing home. But their children, Ivan and Sophie and the younger two, Nicholas and Tanya, can't imagine life without their Granny and launch a full-scale attack to upset the plan. Nicholas and Tanya are in charge of having tantrums and nightmares about Granny going away, while Ivan and Sophie write the devastating 'Granny Project': a full account of their grandmother's life for the social science class. Their blackmail pays off and their parents allow Granny to stay, but there's a catch: all the cleaning, nursing and caring they used to do will now have to be done by the children. Natasha and Henry want their lives back, and quickly set about joining dance classes, going out and living it up. The children try to keep their side of the bargain but it's too hard. The family comes together again, everyone joining in to help with Granny up until she dies a few months later.
