4.5/5 stars

“Through the accomplished use of dialogue, description and character development, Ms. Atkinson tells us this intriguing story. She is a master at her craft. I was thoroughly invested in Sentu’s story. It was over too soon, but it was rightly told in novella form.”

  4. I’m glad I read it. I am hooked. It “piqued” my interest as well. Great writing style.

  5. I’ve read two samples today that express things from a child’s point of view. The first child was four, yours is 10. I’m amazed and loved both samples. You allow the reader to see things through the child’s eyes, feelings and emotions. Great job.
