Reading Level: Grades 8 and up
It was a normal Christmas. Daddy-o, Ginger and their six children had opened their presents at home and then had set off for dinner at Almighty's home. After dinner Almighty, Daddy-o's mother, made an announcement:
One of you has offended me deeply, unless that person comes forward with a confession of his or her crime, submitted to me in writing by New Year's Day, I will donate your share of my fortune to Puppy Ponchos upon my death.
The panicked family agrees that the three teenaged Sullivan girls are the most likely suspects. Each girl is ordered to write a complete confession of all her transgressions. It is the only way to avoid a life of poverty.
