The Mighty Queens of Freeville

The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, a Daughter, and the People Who Raised Them The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, a Daughter, and the People Who Raised Them by Amy Dickinson


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Good book! Amy Dickinson took over the Chicago Tribune advice column (formerly written by Ann Landers) and I know her from guest appearances on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! This is her memoir about how she and her daughter grew up together, after her divorce. Though the chapters are in chronological order, they work well as stand-alone stories. In each, Dickinson tells about some event or realization or change in her life. They're not pedantic, nor are they strictly organized in this way, but they each mark some sort of personal growth. They're witty and entertaining. They're really just good stories.
