For such a short story this packed one heck of a punch. Like, on a scale of 1 to 10 the "feels" here were at a level 20. If Nell Iris can put that much emotion into something that took me not even 20 min to read what can she do with a full length novel? Being as this is my first book by her, I'm going to have to find out.
