'Dear Reverend Mother, 'My name is Mary Clare O'Brian and I am in sixth grade. I would like to join the convent right after eighth grade before I start liking boys too much. I'm already having problems with boys liking me. Gregory in my class throws spitballs at me and told my best friend he likes me. I haven't told him that I want to be God's bride yet. Do you think I should?' Mary Clare is on the lookout for a miracle. Mary Clare O'Brian is determined to be a saint when she grows up (the halo will help cover her frizzy hair). But lately none of her prayers seem to be working the way she wants them to: her mother is losing her faith, her parents can't pay all the bills, and her brother receives a draft notice for the war in Vietnam. Mary Clare has a plan to help, but it just doesn't seem to be working. How is she supposed to become a saint when her world is falling apart? Advance Praise for Saint Training 'This is a novel that is painful, but true; honest, and hopeful; gutsy, and funny---a compelling read for all readers aware of their own spiritual pilgrimages.' --- Gary Schmidt, Newbery Honor Winner and author of Lizzie Bright and the Buckminister Boy and The Wednesday Wars
