A Girl Named Zippy

My latest read was Haven Kimmel's A Girl Named Zippy, and it was absolutely delightful! Read it, read it, read it!!

The book is really just a collection of essays about the ins and outs of growing up in a small Middle American community. It reads like Spoon River Anthology, where much of what is told isn't stated, but inferred.

I grew up in a small-ish town, and some parts of the book brought me back to my own joys and discoveries of childhood. I can't express enough how much I enjoyed this book!

I was thrilled to find that Kimmel has written another book of essays further detailing her small and small town years, and it's definitely high on my "must read" list.
