Book 14: A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana, by Haven Kimmel - Deirdre on reading, writing and living

Mar. 1st, 2009 10:30 am Book 14: A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana, by Haven Kimmel

Zippy was born small with large eyes. She didn't talk until she was good and ready at age three and she zipped everywhere, around her small house and tiny Mooreland, Indiana (population 300).

Kimmel's recollections are amusing, but I'm not as in love with this book as everyone else seemed to be. It's a pre-coming-of-age story and I guess I like my memoirs to be a little juicier.

However, her tales are well written and could be inspiration for anyone who thought that her childhood was too normal to merit a book.
