    1. Sometimes less really is more, and the perspective of a child allows for that exploration in such a way to get to the heart of issues. It was short, and dark, but I enjoyed it. I've always been a big fan of twists in short stories and when it happens so suddenly and in a way that you can't possibly see ahead of time its just that much more effective.
