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

Review: 2019.182 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This story’s strong point is the tension and excitement. Chester’s determination to do what the captain wanted plus his creativity make it a fun read.

Con: It feels like the introduction to a much longer story.

On a practical level, I don’t think a crew of traumatized 5-10 year old kids is going to work very well.
