Thirteen-year-old Dot wants to be a child, but an act of violence shatters her innocence.
“I suppose the initial reaction is simply wow. I thought at the beginning Dot was a beautiful girl’s version of a Holden Caulfield-type character. But boy, oh boy. Poor little Dot was way more than just Holden hoping to be a catcher in the rye…. This is a story I am sure I will remember forever. I thank you for sharing.” — Don, Knoxville, Tennessee
“I just read your story and wow….It’s so beautiful! I can’t wait to read more from you.”

“Such a beautiful story. What an amazing man. Although the sadness was always there, the love and commitment to his family helped him get up and live each day. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to read it.”
— Debbie, Charlottesville, Virginia
