A perfectly believable voice

Enjoyed this thoroughly. Read it aloud to my husband and we paused frequently to laugh. Thank you!

Smart and snappy tale. The child's voice is brilliant and serves as such a fine filter for the reader to absorb the irony. The skirts of the adult world are lifted and it ain't pretty. Such a pleasure to read.

Carin, I was raised Catholic too. My brothers farted from the front pew at Mass, but my parents didn't swear. You got it 'bang on,' especially the part where only Catholics go to heaven and everyone else gets stuck in purgatory. Glenna

Carin - just brilliant! A fellow Catholic Lass, I completely related to every juicy tidbit, right down to the swearing parents. Wonderful work, Carin.

I had a big smile on

I had a big smile on my face after reading your story. You bombarded the reader with the images facing a confused child in an adult world. I loved the conflict between the parents and between them and the church. And we wonder why kids are confused.

A entertaining piece of writing I enjoyed start to finish.
