    Reviewed by Sally Kruger, aka "Readingjunky" for TeensReadToo.com

    This book is for anyone who has ever questioned their faith, lost a loved one, or yearned to understand life just a bit more. Sarah Darer Littman has captured Justine Silver, a confused Jewish girl, within the pages of CONFESSIONS OF A CLOSET CATHOLIC. <BR/><BR/>Justine is surrounded by her faith, but no one seems to celebrate it the same way. Her parents have one idea, her grandparents another. And then there are all those other religions -- which way is the "right" way? Bewildered by this, Justine seeks answers by deciding to adopt her best friend's Catholic beliefs. With the help of Father Ted (a stuffed animal), a secretly purchased rosary, and a "stolen" cross necklace, Jussy turns her closet into her own private "confessional". What will happen when her family finds out? <BR/><BR/>Littman humorously and compassionately shows the readers Justine's life as she struggles with her religious questions, her neat-nick mother, and, sadly, the death of her beloved grandmother. Readers might not find out all the answers from Justine, but they will definitely know they are not alone in the mysterious world of religion.

    a good book

    i liked the book a lot, but i thought justine was kind of a crybaby although i do sympathize with her. i'm glad the author chose such an interesting topic like religious beliefs when most people don't think it would interest teens but it is interesting. i think anyone in grade 5 or up should read it.

    Confessions of a Closet Catholic

    This was a pretty good book. The only part I didn't like was the beginning becuase it was a little boring and not very useful. But, after that the book started getting better and better. It was fun to learn about two different religions. It was an emotional book, but it was a neat book. It was interesting to learn about someone whos life is so messed to up that can change to a life that is great! I am happy I chose to read this book and I think it deserves 4 stars!
