The Mighty Queens of Freeville by Amy Dickinson is a wonderful tale of Dickinson’s life growing up, and her life as a single parent raising her daughter Emily in a small town in upstate New York.
Amy returns to her roots in Freeville, surrounded by an extended family, mother, sisters, cousins, and aunts. The book is written with humor, common sense, and written in a heartfelt way.
I could relate to a lot of the feelings that Amy had as a single parent, but the book is a great read for anyone and her writing style pulls you in until the last word. Fun chapter names like Livestock in the Kitchen: The Many Uses of Cats, The Apex of Dorkitude: Dork, Like Me, will make you laugh and want to read more.
