My Review:

What a cute short story! It draws you in and keeps you there. It makes you think and it makes you feel. I can’t believe how much the author covered in such a short amount of time without rushing or leaving anything out.

This short story is remarkably well written. It tackles a topic that is prevalent throughout most of the Western world but rarely talked about. Adams does so with flare and tact. By using well known locales as the backdrop for this story she gives herself more time to develop the storyline itself while still allowing the reader to picture everything that is going on and where the characters find themselves.

The characters in this short story are minimally developed but it works perfectly. We know as much about the characters as they do about each other. The mystery behind each of them is part of the brilliance of the story. I mean, really, how well do you get to know someone that you’ve only known for a few hours?
