A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC A Girl Named Zippy This witty and lovingly told memoir takes readers back to a time when small town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period people helped their neighbors went to church on Sunday and kept barnyard animals in their backyards .

When Haven Kimmel was born in in Mooreland Indiana it was a sleepy little hamlet of three hundred people Nicknamed Zippy for the way she would bolt around the house this small girl was possessed of big eyes and even bigger ears In this witty and lovingly told memoir Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period people helped their neighbors went to church on Sunday and kept barnyard animals in their backyards .

To three year old Zippy it made perfect sense to strike a bargain with her father to keep her baby bottle never mind that when she did it was the first time she d ever spoken In her nonplussed family Zippy has the perfect supporting cast her beautiful yet dour brother Danny a seeker of the true faith her sweetly sensible sister Lindy who wins the local beauty pageant her mother Delonda who dispenses wisdom from the corner of the couch and her father Bob Jarvis who never met a bet he didn t like .

Whether describing a serious case of chicken love another episode with the evil Edythe across the street or the night Zippy s dad borrowed thirty six coon dogs and a raccoon to prove to the complaining neighbors just how quiet his two dogs were Kimmel treats readers to a heroine who is wonderfully sweet and shy as she navigates the quirky adult world surrounding Zippy
