My Thoughts - Story
I want to start off this review by thanking Talia Haven for requesting me to read and review this book.



Never…never in my life have a read a book only 12 pages long that said sooo much! This book gripped me and the funny thing about this is that after I talked Jahy into reading it also…we discussed this book for a longer time than it took me to read it. There were so many points to discuss – so many different opinions about what happened in these 12 pages. So many questions without definite answers.


And here is the kicker…only 12 pages and I choked up – not once….but twice! This book blew me away!



Now what can possibly be said in 12 pages that means so much?? Well, while Jahy and I were going on and on – I finally came up with a great metaphor to explain how much is packed into this story.


Have you ever seen those beach towels/sponges that are pressurized into a small ball? They are soo tiny but when you add them to water, they expand to something enormous. That is this book…it’s small but packs a big fucking punch!



Oh, and I want to add to my review that Jahy needs to eat her words when she originally laughed at me for reading it. You can’t see me…but I’m sticking my tongue out at her.



We start with Jenny in a playground with her two black puppies.


Jenny goes on a journey to a prison.


Jenny must make a decision.


Yup – that’s all your getting out of me – read the story and find out what shocked me – get shocked too!
