|Confessions of a Paperboy|
Ave Maria, gee it’s good to see ya! When a ten-year-old paperboy Christopher Columbus starts to hear God speaking to him, what should he do? Break out the DaVinci DeCoder ring? Dust off Illuminati for Dummies? Christopher is soon delivering more miracles than newspapers, but why does God want Christopher exposed to the hopes, fears and sorrows of his customers? And could the Devil be subletting that darkened bungalow down the block? A bittersweet fable about the confusion of adolescence, the blush of first love, and the power of faith, CONFESSIONS OF A PAPERBOY is a compelling reminder that though chaos may follow us wherever we go, we all get to choose our own route through this life.
