Read in March, 2006

I didn't love this one quite as much as A Girl Named Zippy, but it was still a fabulous read. Kimmel's quirky (read dysfunctional) family reminded me of my own and I just loved reading more about them. Her mom was amazing and so full of determination--the driving scenes were unforgettable.

It was interesting to get a better glimpse into Kimmel's dad and learn more about his background as well. Kimmel is just a gorgeous writer and I love the way she combines pathos and comedy. I hope she writes more about her growing up experiences. She has a divinity degree and it would be fascinating to learn about that period of her life.
