In My Father's Shoes - Review

Idgie Says:
Nicki sees the world in a way most of us don't.  While many of us go about our daily tasks and events as they come to us without thinking much about them, Nicki opens her eyes and views the day in technicolor.  The smallest event grabs her attention and has her think about it.  Then the way she puts her thoughts on paper makes US think about it.  She helps wake us up a little. 

This book of essays based on real life also has a smaller section in the front that holds fictional stories.  Stories that are just as riveting as her "day in the life" essays.

Most of these essays are 3 pages long, making this a perfect book to keep in your bag or car for those breaks in the day when you need to clear your head of your day and read about someone else's. Read a few of Nicki's stories and you may continue going about your day while looking at it in a whole new light.

I recommend this book.
