Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There's a good bit of tension as Ruby struggles against the hack to her implant. The warm relationship between her and her dolphins is touching. The outcome is completely unexpected.

Con: Something is slightly off about the narration. Not enough to spoil the story, but it feels rough and intrusive somehow.
