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

Review: 2020.256 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It does a great job of showing the kind of uncertainty and awkwardness a teenager feels, mixed with the desires of an adult.

Like most teens, Gretchen is in the middle of a transformation, but her change is different from theirs—although since no one but her can see it, we wonder if it’s real at all.

Con: You can read this story without the supernatural element and nothing changes at all. Not much happens either.
