I love reading short stories and this one did not disappoint. Set in a dystopian future, Kirstin Pulioff drew me in with her concise writing style and descriptive imagery. She immediately transported me to the protection camp where Simone and Christine struggle to survive a horrific caste system and deplorable conditions. Without having to explain the back story of the world in which they live, Pulioff created a meaningful story which left me emotionally tied to the characters. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quick, thought-provoking read.
