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.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Aubrey | 2/12/2014

    " This memoir is full of those quintessential dysfunctions that make up the people and places we love. It's easy to relate to and made me laugh. Something about the narrator made me think of Scout Finch... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Paige | 2/3/2014

    " A very amusing, and mostly light, read but somewhat scattered and hard to follow. It's a great view of her childhood though and is otherwise well written. "

    " This is one of the very few books I've read multiple times. Love it! "

    " I was hoping to laugh out loud. The title grabbed my attention and I usually enjoy memoirs. I thought it would be a lot like Glass Castle, but it wasn't nearly as engaging. I thought she did a good job of writing from her perspective as a child. The stories jumped around a lot and I didn't feel connected to her family after listening about them for 6 hours. The book was read by the author, and even she sounded bored by it sometimes! "
