Another great collection of stories from Haven Kimmel. I really love her style of writing and story-telling. I really feel like it's Zippy, the precocious 11-year-old child telling the stories more than Haven, the 39?-year-old woman recollecting her life. I think that's what makes it so enjoyable for me. I can almost hear my own daughter saying some of the same things.

I think I liked Zippy a little bit better, but this one is also definitely worth reading. You should probably read Zippy first, but not absolutely necessary to enjoy this book.
