    Contrived and confusing.

    It started out well, the climax was interesting, and the conclusion was ridiculous.

    Loved it - Funny and Quirky

    A great short story which keeps you pulled into the mystery and humor. (Great for Halloween)! Since some GPS will grind on your nerves, thought it was quirky and funny. Jennifer Weiner is an awesome author which always steps outside the box – love the short e-stories and recommend!

    Not what I was expecting at all

    If you like a psycho horror thriller quick read this is well written and chilling at points. Sinister and downright evil at others, I would have liked a bit more development of the story a lot was left to be assumed. I was expecting something fun and thoughtful so this disturbed me but it was a good story. Just not for me.

    I am a fan of Jennifer Weiner. Her books always come with a hum

    I am a fan of Jennifer Weiner. Her books always come with a humorous twist that I love but this short story took me by surprise! It was a scary read that also left me a little sad... good job Jennifer! I have her next book on my nook and ready to go!

    Don't read it late at night or while home alone! Not your typical Jennifer Weiner

    Meh

    I guess it was an okay story, and I really can't explain why it bothered me a bit without spoiling it for you, so I won't. But really it was all pretty predictable and horrific. I did not feel for the protagonist at all, and in the end I don't think there was one redeeming character.

    On the other hand, I read the whole thing, it's a quick read and I still didn't just delete it like I could have. So it must have caught me in some way. It's not a waste of time to skim through it as long as it remains free!

    Good Story

    As always Ms. Weiner does not disappoint. I liked the way the story went back and forth between past and present. Good read!
