A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana
I just wanted to share this month’s selection for my library book club. The book is A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana by Haven Kimmel. This is one of the most charming books I’ve ever read – in fact, I’ve read it twice – once several years ago, and again for book club. Kimmel writes with a voice of such childish innocence, yet you never feel like it’s forced or gratuitous. It’s just genuine. And laugh-out-loud funny! I’ve also read the follow-up to Zippy, called She Got Up Off the Couch: And Other Heroic Acts From Mooreland, Indiana. Written in the same style as her first memoir, Kimmel continues to share stories about her childhood. These books are just plain endearing. I really think you’d enjoy them both.
