Wow!!! I have not enjoyed a book like this in a long time. You will find yourself laughing out loud. Though the book is written in the style of journal entries, it is just like Daisy Fay is talking to you herself.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to have the inside track on the people in Daisy Fay's life.

Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man is a touchingly funny story written by Fannie Flagg. Daisy Fay Harper keeps a journal chronicling all of her adventures from the time she is 11 to when she wins the Miss Mississippi pageant. She's a tomboy sort of girl with a Dennis-the-Menace type penchant for getting herself into trouble. She doesn't mean to, it just seems to happen. Her father is an alcoholic ne'er-do-well with lots of grandiose ideas. The kooky locals in the story are lovable, particularly Jimmy Snow. I laughed out loud a lot when I read the book and the story has to be pretty funny for me to do that! I recommend it highly!

Definitely lots of humor here (but too close to the crude and profane for me to enjoy it all).
