I Don't wanna Be An Orange Anymore by Hank Kellner

Hi Peeps!   Today we're talking about I Don't Wanna Be An Orange Anymore! by Hank Kellner.    This is a great spring read for a rainy afternoon.   It is short and funny and a classically reminiscent of The Christmas Story (movie as told from a kids viewpoint), or Wonder Years, (t.v. sitcom told from a boy's point of view).    I could hear the narrator from the movie talking as I read this tale about  the life of a nine year old and how he survived his elementary through middle school years despite a sister who insisted on blaming him for everything and a bully who threatened to end his life as he knew it.   I had to chuckle at the antics this boy endured and how he eventually grew up, served his country , married and had children of his own.

We've all been there at one time or another....a kid and how our futures are molded by the experiences we share and endure when we are young and new to this world.    This was a very endearing and sweetly told story.   I rated it a 4 Wink short story read due to its timeless nature.   I felt like I received a giant hug while reading.
