I will not sit here and review this book based on its length. On the cover (and also the 2nd page) it clearly says “A flash fiction story”, meaning it IS suppose to be short. Previous reviews look to be based on the length and not the context, which silently annoys me.

Although a short read, I found myself routing for Miles hoping he’d find the girl in the pink converse. I liked the detailing and description of Miles’ surroundings and his mission to find the mysterious girl. Yes it was short and lacked depth, but as a flash fiction I’m not sure what readers were expecting.

A very cute, light/quick read!
