Ricky’s father is an atheist activist. These days, Ricky is beginning his own search for God, and something to believe in.
“Kids at school think that, being an atheist, you worship the devil, and you think that the devil is the best thing in the whole wide world. I tell them that an atheist doesn’t believe in the devil. And also, I’m not an atheist, really. I used to think that I was an atheist. Now I’m not really so sure. I’m sorta confused, because I don’t know what to believe.”
