Product Description

Bethann, a struggling college student, takes her evil younger sister, Holly, to re-raise after the grandmother who tried to raise them dies. On the rainy interstate, en route from South Georgia to Miami, Florida, Bethann lays down the rules to Holly--no more stealing, no more lying, no more recreational eating, no more hanging out with more, no more... The list goes on and on as Bethann mentally searches for reasons why Holly is like she is. If Bethann can understand her, she can fix her. So she thinks...

HASH(0xb66413cc) out of 5 stars Not quite what I was expecting... Sept. 30 2012

It's Okay To Cry was an OK book. The author had a good idea, and a good start to a story, however they did not go any farther with it than what probably could've been a prologue. From the description I thought the other "evil younger sister" would have been a younger teenager, and much more teenager acting. The author didn't go quite as far as I would've liked into the story, but it is deffinitely a good idea! I'd like to see more added, such as chapters and a full book. Very short to this point, but interesting enough to make you want to read more.

HASH(0xaa7967bc) out of 5 stars Pretty good June 7 2012

This story is a good character study rich with tension. However, I had trouble determining the time setting. Ialso had trouble picturing Bethanne and figuring her age and Holly's. But i do appreciate the author making this story available for free. She is a talented writer. The story needs some editing. Looks like the conversion to HTML resulted in problems with paragraphing and spacing.

HASH(0xaa8925c4) out of 5 stars It's Okay to Cry by Janice Daugharty June 13 2012
By S. Warfield - Published on

This is a 9-page short story by Janice Daugharty that is full of contrasts between two sisters and the difficult challenge that the older Bethann has in taking her so far ne'er do well sister, Holly, back to Florida with her after the grandmother who was raising Holly has passed away. The grandmother didn't have a lot of success with Holly and Bethann is in college in Miami, Florida, where she is taking Holly, but she sees her sister as "nineteen, but an adolescent mess..." (Loc 2)

At the funeral, Bethann has genuine tears for her grandmother, but Holly remains dry-eyed, "ugly, greedy, mean." (Loc. 13) The mother of the two girls hanged herself in jail, and their father died from drinking, so a lot of Holly's problems are understandable. Bethann heads to her car and is hoping in the back of her mind that Holly's shadow isn't following, but the same shadow that has always followed Bethann is lumbering along behind, casting that of the two-hundred pound sister behind Bethann.

Holly was pregnant at fifteen, and Bethann isn't sure she can even read. Bethann doesn't know what kind of job Holly can hold down, but hold down a job she must because Bethann cannot support her by herself. Holly needs to learn to express her feelings and to gain some self-esteem and her sister is hoping to help her to do that.

This is an excellently written short story by a master of writing. Characters are genuine and whether you like them or not, you will feel something for them, and in the end, it really is okay to cry.

HASH(0xaaaf8330) out of 5 stars Boring, sad ending. Feb. 1 2013

This is only a 15-page book, insanely boring, with no real plot, and a really sad ending. I would not recommend it. The other reviews led me astray and made me believe this was a better book than it really was.
