    A look into the human capacity for hate and fear.

    Although the story seems a little forced at times, the author tells a tale about the parts of us we are most embarrassed to admit: our close mindedness, our selfishness, and our willingness to condone evil. A truly touching short story that might just remind someone to act the next time they see injustice. I would advise this book for everyone.

    How far would you go?

    This was a heartbreaking tale of a vampire boy, Jerry, who just wanted to be like everyone else. While it is a short read, it's worth the time. Scott has done an excellent job with this story, and I will be sharing it with my kids. Incredible!

    This is a very good short story. It shows just how us as humans act and treat others we see as differant. This story is fiction, but it could be true if not for the vampire.

    Unbelivable!

    I'm not a fan of short stories but this is an exception. I felt for the characters and I appreciate how everyone grew as people at the end but I can't help but feel it would have been stronger as a novel or even just a novella, but as it is it' s an amazing story with a great lesson. A great read for a free story.

    Very Good

    This short story was very good, even though I am not usually into short stories because they are just that.. to short. In the time it takes you to read this story, I feel it makes us look at something important, how we treat children who are different and just want to be accepted. This story has a sad ending and makes you stop and think about how we as adults and as a society often times treat our youngest members who are different. Definately a good story.
