Overview

It's October of 1970 and twelve-year-old altar boy Conner O'Neil has a few problems. He's dodging some oddly personal questions from his local parish priest while also suppressing the guilt he feels from the night he and his buddies shot out the window of a local haunted house. Worst of all, he learns he has to kiss the creepiest girl in class after getting the lead in the school play.

But only after his father has another heart attack do his real troubles begin . . .

A heartwarming and life-affirming coming-of-age tale told in a unique and unforgettable voice.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Disclaimer: I grew up (and still live in) the town depicted in the story. Nonetheless, I think anyone, hailing from anywhere, will enjoy the story.
