About Mark Stephens

Mark Stephens lives in Orlando, Florida, by route of St. Marys, Ohio(birthplace) and Asheville, NC. Moving here in 1998 after visiting, he fell in love with the climate and the city, becoming active in the community and its growth.
Writing has always been a love of his ever since high school, but, until recent advancements in technology, it was always an unrealistic passion to become a published author. Now, he's able to devote his time between writing and family and work. At least, until he doesn't have to work anymore.

My kid really loved this book. I read it over too and even though it is clearly for younger teens it is a really cute story. I am not sure of the age of the author but if she were to have someone look over some of the small editing this would be so much more. If you let your kid download books then this is a safe and fun one for them!

I rather enjoyed this story and it was a short story, only took an afternoon to read. I found the tale to be rather concise and tight and the characterization of Amy as a 10 yr old was spot on. There are a number of flashbacks and a few instances of verbal meanderings, but as a mother of an 8 yr old, I thought it was a pretty good rendering of the mind of a child.
At first, I was a bit confused as to where the entire story was going to go, but when I got to the end, I realized what the author was trying to do. No spoilers here, but the ending I was expecting wasn't the one I got in a pleasant way, I guess.
It's difficult to explain without giving too much away, but I did find it an enjoyable read and will check out the author's other offerings.

I'm not sure why this is being called a short story; it's more like a short novel. But that's got nothing to do with why I only give it 3 stars. The simple fact is, it would be a really good book if it was properly edited. There are so many places where words are missing from sentences so they bearly make sense (and sometimes only do because you can figure it out from what comes next) that I lost count, which is very distracting and makes it difficult to enjoy a story. Also, I think there were too many long-winded flashbacks. Flashbacks are great, but I felt the first half of the book at least had more flashbacks than story progression; you don't need more than the most important information with flashbacks, and only need to be that detailed if someone is really going back in time to live through it. Like I said though, it is a pretty good book, and could be a really good one with proper editing.
