Very touching story, makes me think of the thin line of what is right and what we think is right, and the actions we take based on our choice.

It's sad that this may not entirely be a work of fiction.

Dad, Mom, my younger brother, Ricky, & I were going to visit our grandparent. Aunts/Uncles & cousins were going to be there also. My coat had a whole in it my parents were upset. I told them I did not know how it happened but I got a spanking anyway.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written family type short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios & a great set of unique characters. A very easy rating of 5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)
