Overview

I Don't Brake for Nuns: A Kid-Turned-Adult Perspective of Catholic School and the Nun-Run Classroom in the 1960s by Rick Phillips M.Ed.

"I DON'T BRAKE FOR NUNS!" is a hilarious narrative of Catholic School in the 1960s as seen through the eyes of a kid stuck right smack in the middle of a nun-run educational system. For every kid who ever felt the snap of a nun's ruler or the sneaky, crisp slap of a shrouded sister, this book pays in recompense. "I DON'T BRAKE FOR NUNS!" will bring tears of laughter to anyone who can empathize with children trying to survive the fanatical discipline of nuns. While witty and marvelously perspicuous throughout, the book is also poignant, and impels readers to be introspective, too. Most notably, the book is funny. "I DON'T BRAKE FOR NUNS!" is a serious, tongue-in-cheek, precise exaggeration that enables readers to put themselves back at their desk and relive for themselves their own school days. This book appeals to everyone who always wanted to go back to those days of yesteryear with an adult mind, and alter the course of classroom history.
