A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel

I had heard some good things about this book, found it at a used library book sale, and decided to pick it up. Afterall, I felt that I could probably find many things to relate to considering it's about growing up in a small town. I personally grew up in a small town and believe that a small town has a very "special" feel to it.

Most memoirs or autobiographies reflect on an author's tragic or dramatic life; however, Kimmel changes things up a bit and writes about the positive, her happy childhood. It was a nice change of pace for the genre. Though it was nice to read something a little different for a change and it was another easy read, I personally just could not get into the book. I did giggle a few times, but most of the time I was rather bored . . . maybe that was just my personal reflection and remembrance of growing up in a small town?!?! :) Would I recommend this book to others? Maybe . . . if someone was looking for a light read, didn't have a lot of time to focus on the book, and had good skimming skills! To be honest, I would probably recommend many others first though!
