Children’s inexperience to life is a great way for authors to create lesson learning, life-like situations for readers by demonstrating bad decision making. For example, Jackie in “First Confession” is a young boy consumed by his emotions and driven by strong views of his grandmother and sister. He threatens his sister with a butter knife and refuses to eat grandma’s cooked meals because of his reluctance to show any approval of either of them. The hypocrisy he sees in both of them leads him in refusal to interact and even shun them from his life. He eventually plots to kill his own grandmother!
