My Review: I have to say right off that this was an awesomely fun read. Though it’s only twenty-eight pages, the author did a fantastic job of making me care for the main character as she dealt with losing those around her and her wait to be next. The ending took me by surprise, and I have mixed feelings on it—meaning, I loved it but it was awkward at the same time. It’s hard to explain without giving anything away, but I thought it was an excellent payoff.
