My Twelve Days of Christmas
by Rosemary Simpkins
I am a twelve-year-old boy, and my life hasnt been easy so far. My father died two years ago, leaving my mother and I in severe debt.

When my dad was alive, he drank and smoked all the time and could never hold down a job. He blamed my mother for his problems, and I heard them yelling at each other every night. I remember my mom saying something to him about a twelve-step program and how he kept missing meetings and didnt seem to want to get better. Thats what gave me my ideaAbout the Author
