“I love Helen Ellis! As usual, I listened to the audiobook from Libro.fm because her narration brings so much laughter to each story. Her stories are relatable, and she writes what we all say in our head. I grew up in South Carolina, so I can totally picture her in Alabama at the garage sale, telling jokes with friends, and simply being herself. Much love!”Sara, Roundabout Books
