My Review:

I never know how to really rate or review short stories because they almost always leave me wanting more. I realize that short stories aren't as "full up" as normal sized and larger novels so we don't get all the nitty gritty details and instead are fast tracked through the story. Keeping that in mind, this is a short story by fellow Bookstagrammer @KateyReads and I'm extremely impressed and happy that she is published! I've always wanted to write but haven't quite followed through so kudos to Katey and CONGRATS LADY!

This story reads extremely fast. Now, I know... it's a short story, it's supposed to, but they don't always and I think if you've read enough short stories you'll know what I mean. This one zooms on by and you're taken on quite the ride. I did feel it was a bit choppy in certain areas as it passed through time with a quickness and at times I wondered where it could possibly be going. I did NOT expect it to go where it did and that ending... well, let's just say I looked like one of the characters did at the end. **wink** 

Succinct, unexpected and quite the ride.
