Reviews

"Almost dreamlike in some of [her] elusive storytelling, [Kimmel] pulls off a feat that's harder than it looks: write for adults from a child's perspective . . . Zippy's parents must have done something right to produce a girl who could write such a simple and lovely book."
-USA Today

"A Girl Named Zippy seems to be about the cleverest . . . memoir ever. [Kimmel is] a born storyteller . . . I imagine everyone in the world would be grateful for Kimmel's book."
-Orlando Sentinel

"Very engaging, funny . . . it could be a cheerier version of the Leechfield, Texas, Mary Karr chronicled in The Liar's Club, if drunks never got ugly and if fathers never took a belt to their kids."
-Hartford Courant

"Delightfully wry (and sometimes laugh-out-loud-funny)."
-Indianapolis Star
