TO LIVE A LIE

A small snuffler about Noel who assumes the name Jennifer and tells her second lie when she says her mother's dead. Actually all of this is the backlash of her parents' separation, of being put upon by her father with whom they're living while she really has to care for the younger ones, of being insecure and friendless at her new Junior High, of being neglected in general until--on her wretched birthday--she returns her mother's present which brings her back pronto for a long heart-to-heart, even ""woman-to-woman"" talk. Available for the misery that likes recognizable company at this age level.
