This free download to my Kindle is a YA novel, featuring a 12-yo Catholic girl who wants to be a saint. Her preoccupation with sin, her standng as the oldest girl in her family of 9 chldren (translating to a lot of work and responsibilities at home), her friendships, her family's lack of money because of the size of the family, etc all conspire to turn her into a charming girl -- I liked her -- she is open and honest, curious, and delightful. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about children/teens, and to anyone who went to Catholic school, and also to anyone who remembers or wants to know more about the Milwaukee race riots and the draft for the Vietnam War. I really did enjoy this easy-to-read book.
