What a great read! I too survived the Blizzard of '77 and grew up in an adjacent neighborhood to the author's. Her account is right on and not exaggerated - believe it or not. Similar to "The Glass Castle" in that a funny heartwarming story can be born from a teen's survival journey, Pedersen mixes humor and some Bethlehem-steel edge to create a brilliant book. It brought me back to a simpler time when one measured happiness by the number of consecutive hours skating on the backyard pond. For those who are weary of recession-induced environments, this will provide a breath of fresh air!

Not up to Laura Pedersen's usual standard

I have read 2 other books by Laura Pedersen, and this one is not at all as good. Perhaps this is because this is a memoir.
