Review by: Anna Tan on Oct. 12, 2011 :
I've been following Donna Carrick on twitter for a while now and leapt at the chance to pick up this book of short stories free on Smashwords.
I'm glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book. Each story is gripping, delving deep into the psyches of her young protagonists.
One thing I did have trouble with was keeping the stories separate, as all of them were written in first person, often by a young girl, and many have similar backgrounds, such as an abusive father and/or a younger sister, so I had to stop in between each story to remind myself that it was a new set of characters. You probably will not face this problem if you don't read it all in one sitting as I did.
