Summary
In the spring of 1952, Daisy Fay Harper, is “&#x6E;ot doing much except sitting around waiting for the sixth grade.”&#x20;When she leaves Shell Beach, Mississippi, in September 1959, she is packed up and ready for the Miss America Pageant, vowing “&#x49; won<U+2019>t come back until I<U+2019>m somebody.”&#x20;But in our hearts she already is. Sassy and irreverent from the get-go, Daisy Fay takes us on a rollicking journey through her formative years on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. There, at The End of the Road of the South, the family malt shop freezer holds unspeakable things, society maven Mrs. Dot hosts Junior Debutante meetings and shares inspired thoughts for the week (such as “&#x73;incerity is as valuable as radium”)&#x2C; and Daisy Fay<U+2019>s Daddy hatches a quick-cash scheme that involves resurrecting his daughter from the dead in a carefully orchestrated miracle. Along the way, Daisy Fay does a lot of growing up, emerging as one of the most hilarious, appealing, and prized characters in modern fiction
