Rate this:
The story of a modern-day Huckleberry Finn. Set in a rural farming community in western Pennsylvania, Our Nun gives fresh voice to the great tradition of the American pastoral. The classic idyll goes awry when young Boyd Robison and his friends find a body in the local churchyard causing Boyd and his buddies to take a closer look at the odd characters--and sudden suspects--of their close-knit community. Dry, understated wit and Boyd's naive bravery turn this seemingly dark tale into a joyful and charming story about growing up in America's heartland.
