THE BOY WHO WANTED TO BE A MAN
Little Roger, an eleven-year-old boy growing up in northern Maine near the Canadian border, must write a history paper about his small town of Frenchville. As his mother is telling him about growing up in nearby New Brunswick, Canada, she says, "Where I'm from, a boy is not a man until he kills a deer."
Little Roger sets a new goal for himself: not only does he want to get an A on his history paper about Frenchville, but he also wants to kill a deer and become a man! He knows what he must do, but it's something new to him and he must find a way to reconcile the task with the outcome. With only a couple of days left in the hunting season, will Little Roger kill a deer and become a man? Fiction
