Confessions of a Catholic School Dropout

ByPatti Lavell

“Confessions” is a flippant tale about an outspoken girl growing up in a strict, Irish Catholic home. Laugh-out-loud humor helps soften the hard truths about Patti Anne's unusual life and the cast of characters around her. Mustached nuns, botched Confessions, and the attempted seduction of a priest are brought to life with irreverent and shocking clarity. Patti Anne's gender was a great disappointment to her family. Had she been born with a penis, her godfather wouldn't have been ripped from this world. To atone for her crime, she pretends to be a boy, a charade fully supported by her dysfunctional family. Patti Anne's Aunt Elizabeth, a combative woman with an Irish brogue and a sharp tongue, is fiercely protective. Although she hits first and asks questions later, she is the most sane adult in Patti Anne's world; the only one on whom the girl can rely for affection. Elizabeth teaches about love and the healing effects of laughter. All that changes when Elizabeth accuses her of killing a second time.
