Patricia Savage [March 2006]

She Got Up Off the Couch by Haven "Zippy" Kimmel. When I read her first memoir, A Girl Named Zippy, I thought how delightful, how original. But it wasn't until I read the sequel, She Got Up off the Couch, that I got so I did not want to end my visit with Kimmel. She draws you into her young world with a tenderness and style so full of vivid images that I force myself to put the book down after one chapter at the end of the evening so I can be with her again tomorrow.
