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

Review: 2019.116 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This is the story of Ry and Jackie’s relationship and how he opened up to her enough to make it something lasting. It’s also the story of how he made his final goodbye to his own father and finally found some peace with his past.

Con: The speculative element is disposable; you could replace it with something from our world and the story would be about the same.
