She Got Up off the Couch and Other Heroic Acts from Mooreland, Indiana, by Haven Kimmel

This bittersweet memoir is a sequel to “A Girl Named Zippy.” Delonda, Zippy’s mom is the woman who gets off the couch, and, after receiving a divine go-ahead, takes a College Entrance Exam, enrolls at Ball State and gets a bachelor’s degree in two years. It wasn’t easy, but her difficulties and successes are a reflection of the lives of women in the post-’60’s era.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
