  2. I agree with Elephant's Child. Your memoir is a total gem!

    I was the lucky recipient of another blogger's giveaway of this book, and I loved every single word of it.

    I finally got around to writing a Goodreads review, Becky, and I'm copying and pasting it here. I cannot recommend this delightful book highly enough.

    A series of 3-7 page snapshots from every stage of the author's life, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs is a wonderful, delightful, thoroughly engaging read. Though many of the chapters touch on people discussed in earlier chapters, for the most part, each chapter is like its own little short story, and for that reason, I found the book easy to read in fits and jerks---a good thing since I didn't have one long stretch of time available to me.

    The author's warmth, humor, and love of life shine brightly from every page---even the sad stories. I found myself smiling, getting teary-eyed, and being reminded of my own wonderful childhood again and again.

    In today's climate of "what my parents did wrong" kind of memoirs, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs is a breath of fresh air. You'll fall in love with Becky Povich on the very first page.

    I will definitely be reading this book's sequel!
