On "Mirabeau, the Truant" by Andrew Brininstool (4687 words) ****
Mirabeau is a peeping tom. He is also a boy on the cusp of being a teenager, a boy with a father suffering from depression, a boy with certain problems adjusting to the world around him--or understanding it.

But in the midst of this, there are small moments of beauty that make life worth living. Read the story here at Better.
