This "book" was 104 pages short. While the story was not terrible, $9.99 for it is a rip off. B&N needs to make page counts clear in these listings, I never would have bought a short book like this in the store for that much. I could have read it in store for free. As for the story itself... it was fair. It ends abruptly but I don't really feel the need to care about what happens to these characters next. There is a mid story change of character perspective that ends a few pages later and it is awkward at best. Overall, I think this story belongs in a book full of other short stories.
