Daisy Fay And The Miracle Man
Daisy Fay And The Miracle Man | Fannie Flagg
Fannie Flagg takes us on a journey to a South that only Southerners know, to a time when 'Blue Velvet' was played at the Senior Prom, and into the life of Daisy Fay Harper, a sassy, truth-telling heroine who just can't stay out of trouble. What's more she tells us everything - from what (or who) made her Daddy and Momma split up to what is really stashed in the freezer of the family's malt shop. Daisy Fay is coming of age in the Gulf Coast's Shell Beach, which is The End of the Road of the South, but a dandy place to meet the locals like hard-drinking Jimmy Snow, former debutante Mrs Dot and Daisy's own Daddy. They're all part of the fun that takes us down home, back to the '50s, and into the best story ever written east of Texas...

Thanks for the gift, @Eyelit - does this miracle man know how to make more space for the books in the carton on my floor? 😂

Eyelit Lol, I wish! 😂 9mo

#FriendsOfTheLibrary book sale today. All the good SciFi was gone by the time I got there, but I still found a few ... somehow ... 😄
Picked up three story books for the twins, but the Poe comic is for me. 😉
Bottom two in front stack have been on my GoodreadsTBR for a few years, and the tagged was just interesting.
Only spent $5 on this #bookhaul!
Oldest also picked up a few books on WWII as well as a couple juvenile reads.

This book always makes me laugh the good tears, which is great, because I've had a bad case of the meeps that tacos didn't even help.

I'm choosing Daisy Fay Harper as my #innocence protagonist for #augustofpages We read her formative years diaries as she goes from 11 to 17 and while she does lose some of her innocence, she never loses her (occasionally naive) optimism #augustphotochallenge

SarahK I haven't read this in so long! 3y
