Charity Books

Sometimes it seems to me that if a book is for charity, or is written by a child, it is means to be untouchable. So what kind of bitch would criticize a book by a child, for a charity.  Answer: me.

It is great that a ten year old wrote a book to help work through his issues with nightmares, and wants to help fund cancer research after his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.

However:
  • The book is 28 pages long 
  • It is priced as $18.63
  • Only $1 of this is being donated
This leaves me less than entirely impressed with both the precocious talent of the child and the charitable intent of the book..
