My Smashed Reviews reviewed on March 31, 2013

I had a similar impression to an earlier reviewer. I thought the story was told very well and drew you in. It also had a dark element that made it a little disturbing. As things unfolded at the end, however, I was left wanting a little more oomph. The author did actually have some reveals that changed things up a bit, but I was more interested in what the secrets are, and that part was not as satisfying.

This is one of those concept stories that really makes you think. It really isn't much of a stretch from some of the horror stories surrounding China's One Child Policy. The story draws you on due to its premise and some suspenseful moments, but it sputters out at the end.
