Review: 2020.010 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: For the most part, this is almost a Robinson-Crusoe story, telling how a young girl managed to survive in a really hostile place.

Con: I didn’t care for the magical time travel, complete with the implication that it’s usually random but sometimes God cares about the feelings of people enough to do it on special request.

I doubt a teenage girl dropped into the Cretaceous with nothing to support her would survive more than 24 hours.
