memoir 1

I am reading a book call A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel. This is a memoir about a little girl who grows up in a town in Indiana called Mooreland. The book starts off with a prologue telling about her oddities as a baby she did talk until she was two. The prologue also tells about her town and the fact that is just a po-dunk farm community is rural Indiana.
The first chapter is called "Baby Book" (thats how it is in the book). The chapter is what her mom wrote about her when she was a only a few weeks old. She kept a journal of Zippy's staph ear infection which apparently could have killed her if the doctor did randomly grab the right medication.
The second Chapter is called "hair" it goes into depth about one of her other kink. This was her lack of hair until she was about three. She would get wigs and ride her trike down the streets and yell that is was her real hair.
