Wise-beyond-her-years, Shannon is Pat and Eileen’s youngest and brightest child. Though she’s a clever, resourceful fourteen-year-old, her moral compass could definitely use some recalibrating. Shannon’s big secret is that she’s been using the money she raised for poor children in Africa to actually buy herself a car... even though she’s not quite old enough to drive. Shannon, who is always eager for a “lusty debate,” seeks answers to her toughest religious questions from her priest as she prepares for her upcoming confirmation, leaving him in a bit of a spiritual crisis himself. Though she may never get the explanations she’s looking for, one thing is clear: Shannon’s going places in this world. But whether that place is a federal prison or the White House remains to be seen.
