In this short we get to see how profound Mandy's loss is and the huge emotional toll it's taking on her and her family. This story shows you how grief is powerful enough to affect our minds. Ms. Briscoe did a phenomenal job showcasing this with her writing of the emotions conveyed in this book. I can't wait to continue on their epic journey in Hollow. I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
I knew before I even cracked this book open that it would try to break me. And it nearly did. This book may be short, but Mandy’s pain is so clearly etched in every word of this story. Her every thought and action. It’s so palpable it emanates from the pages. My heart breaks for what this family is going through, and it bleeds over the fact that they can’t seem to successfully reach out to each other for comfort and support. I’m dying to read Hollow now, but I know that not only will that book break me, it will ruin me. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

In this short you can feel the excruciating pain Mandy is going through from the miscarriage. This was well written and I can't wait for Hollow to come out. Laramie Briscoe has always written her characters with so much emotion you feel it to your core. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
