"Her Youngest Son," by Valery Geary
Being a kid is fraught with lots of frustration whether you are an only child or one among a litter as this kid.

I’ve always wanted to experience the Giant Redwoods in California. This story offers a wonderful moment capturing the immensity and mystery of those ancient trees. Read it here in Mendacity Review.
