I just finished reading this and have to say, I loved it more than the first installment (A Girl Named Zippy)
I would suggest, highly suggest, reading the first book and then She Got Up Off the Couch.
The problem is that I liked the second book so much, I am hoping for a third. Although Haven Kimmel alluded to what was going to happen, the book ended with me wanting more. I hope she writes another, although she originally said that she wasn't writing a sequel to Zippy and she did. I don't want to let anything slip that was in the book, so I won't say more, but it was a great read. Of course, I read the books back to back, which makes it easy to follow along.
You want a "feel good" read, read these.
I got the second book from the library, but it anyone wants the book "A Girl Named Zippy", email me (yarnsandmusings(at)gmail.com) and I'll send it out to you.
