Increasingly frustrated with the limitations of her small-town, married-with-children life, Delonda decides first to learn how to drive a car, even though she won't have access to one. Next, she applies to the local college, eventually graduating with honors at age 40.
We happily follow Zippy from one story to another, but we know this is really her mother's book: the poignant tale of a strong woman who found a way to save herself and set a proud example for her daughter.

Great fun !!
I read A Girl Called Zippy (or was that named Zippy) in actual book form before I downloaded this one so I had some idea of what to expect - I was not disappointed. It's hilarious and real - its the kind of book I would write if I had any talent. The characters are so odd yet endearing - the perfect cure for the "blah" book blues. Do yourself a favor and give it a shot :)

smart and endearing
In general, I have an aversion to memoirs. But Haven Kimmel's reads like fiction, with characters one cares about. Get this book. Actually, get A Girl named Zippy first, then this book. You'll laugh out loud, maybe cry a bit...but certainly you'll be engaged.
