She got up off the Couch and other Heroic Acts from Mooreland, Indiana
Sequel to the best-seller "A Girl Named Zippy". Zippy heads towards being 13, and many things happen, described in her usual accurate amusing yet penetrating style. Her mother goes to college, she becomes a devoted aunt twice. She survives (just) a fractured arm, a very cross cow, Quaker Haven Camp and the worst blizzard in living memory. Sustained by her friends and her lack of faith as her father moves towards a silent epiphany that has hung over her childhood and signals It's end.
