Y’all, I get more story ideas than I’ll ever be able to use. For this A to Z Challenge I’m sharing some of these crazy and random balloons with you just for the fun of it. The posts will be set up like a backcover blurb or a newspaper article. Sit back and enjoy!
Jenny Smith’s eagerness to learn makes her a favorite among her teachers. Her happy disposition and willingness to help anyone makes her a favorite among the students. What no one realizes is that she goes home each day to a one room shack where she lives with her little sister and illiterate father who struggles to survive in a world that values literacy.
Jenny hides her father’s secret as she helps him fake it. From reading to him each night to teaching him to write his signature, Jenny is driven by one goal: To learn enough so she can teach her loving father to read and write.
Then they are evicted from their home and the threesome start out on a cross-country road trip looking for a better job and a new life.
Believe is a story of love, family loyalty, trust, hope and most of all the belief in the ones we’re closest to.

If you wrote a story about believing in someone, who would that person be?
