My Favorite Book

This book is my favorite book. I have read it several times and enjoyed it every time. This is also Fannie Flagg's first novel. There is just something special about this one. I was born and raised in the South myself and can completely relate to so many things that happen in the book.

Brief Overview via Goodreads:
In Fannie Flagg’s high-spirited first novel, we meet Daisy Fay Harper in the spring of 1952, where she’s “not doing much except sitting around waiting for the sixth grade.” When she leaves Shell Beach, Mississippi, in September 1959, she is packed up and ready for the Miss America Pageant, vowing “I won’t come back until I’m somebody.” But in our hearts she already is.

ISBN-13: 9780345485601
