A Girl Named Zippy

A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana is Haven Kimmel’s wise yet witty memoir of a rambunctious small-town childhood. Zippy said nothing until she was almost 3 years old. When her dad told her she was too old for a baby bottle, she pulled it from her mouth and spoke her first words: “I’ll make a deal with you.” If you read this book, prepare to laugh.
