Review by: Amanda Surowitz on July 18, 2013 :
I found the story enjoyable and compelling enough to get me from the first page to the last. The tense atmosphere from the beginning was my favorite aspect, as well as how the situation got resolved.

That being said, I found the language to be a bit awkward at some points. It pulled me out of the story a little, but not enough to make me give up on reading.
