    In a coming-of-age memoir about a woman who loved being a girl and what made her finally grow up, Kelly Corrigan brilliantly explores the "middle place" between childhood and adulthood and how one woman made the leap to the other side.

    MusicMom13 says: "Very special story about the joy of a good family"
    "good book, narration annoying"
    Overall

    As a contemporary and a daddy's girl, I identified with the author a great deal and enjoyed the memoir very much. It has a nice tone and is neither self-congratulatory nor self-deprecating. However, I did not like the narrator's unnatural habit of enunciating and pronouncing each and every sound. For example, in each instance of "next to", both t's were pronounced! The stilted over-articulation was a constant reminder that the author was not the reader, and that the story was being read/recited and not told.
