it was ok
Read in November, 2007

This book was pleasurable enough to read, but because it wasn't very plot driven, it took me forev-ER to complete. Zippy's narration is amusing and I enjoyed her descriptions of a more innocent time of small town Americana, when farm animals were kept in backyards, and kids could ride their bikes (complete with streamers and horns) to the corner drug store for a 26 cent lemon phosphate. But beyond that, I'm not entirely sure what she was trying to convey in her memoir, and I wasn't compelled to reflect much deeper. The weaving of certain characters and themes throughout was nice, and when Zippy does finally do her good deed and appreciate her mother's insistence on sunrise Easter church attendance, it is sweet, not cheesey, as it easily could have been.

Pamela Plot driven?? It's a memoir.
