The Sullivan family enjoys a nice lifestyle living in a big house with a very prestigious reputation. Their grandmother is nicknamed Almighty because she has so much influence in society. On Christmas Day Almighty announces that one member of the Sullivan family has offended her and the entire family will be cut off financially if that person does not confess. The three teenage girls immediately write confessions and deliver them to Almighty on New Year’s Eve. They all three believe they were the ones to offend Almighty and put their family’s future in jeopardy. What would you be willing to admit if your financial security depended on it?
This story is very interesting as the three confessions weave together and the reader tries to figure out who was the person who actually offended Almighty. The characters are well written and easy to identify with, which makes it easier to care about what happens to this family. The Sullivan parents are vapid and uninvolved, but the kids are all unique and have a healthy dynamic with each other. The ending is satisfying, but it’s the confessions that will interest readers the most as these girls admit what they have done without thinking about how these actions could influence the family. Recommended.
