‘Like Father, Like Daughter’ By Felicia Nicole Hall

Excited with the prospect of winning an art show, 15-year-old Marcie Panter is working feverishly on her painting. She really feels as though she has what it takes to win. Despite her passion for art, her father is strict that she stay focused on her studies in preparation for the SATs, insisting that painting is a waste of time and should only be a hobby. Marcie does whatever she can to please her father but she doesn’t want to give up the opportunity to win a spot in the Mason Art Gallery for her painting. After uncovering some of her father’s darkest secrets, Marcie questions how alike she and her father really are and why he hates the arts so much. In a change of events Marcie’s dad realizes he should be supporting his little girl. After all, that is all his late wife would have wanted.
