  • A Coffin and Bubble Gum on Jan. 26, 2012
    star star star star
    I loved this. Quirky flash fiction is my favourite. And it's intimate with the reader - always a winner. Only lost a star because of a tense slip ('The girl gasp' should have been 'The girl gasped' - sorry, I'm a picky editor / writer :)).

    Twins - one good, one bad. What's not to like? We're reflecting on Liza's past from her grown-up self but often get childlike glimpses which I loved. This story has such rich characters, humour and a great plot. I have Julie's 'One Night Stand' and brought it to the top of the pile because of this story. As writers we're often advised not to start characters' names with the same letter, or if you do make sure they sound different as Julie has done, but I knew someone who had four children, all starting with the same letter (Liam, Lola, erm...) and for me, although personally, this added an extra layer realism, plus my mum / aunt are twins so I could imagine the girls being them - I wonder which would have been which.
